We want you to be part of I LOVE OXFORDSHIRE

Your Opinions are part of Oxfordshire’s story, and we’d like them to be part of ours too.

Send us your opinions, reviews and stories.

Think of it as writing a letter to the newspaper or doing a Trip Advisor review.

If we publish your piece then we pay – if you get star letter we pay more and you’ll be helping your chosen charity too – it’s as simple as that.

Give us an Opinion, a Review or a Story and help your chosen Charity

Your opinions, stories, anecdotes and reflections on life in Oxfordshire will be of great interest to our readers and we’ve made it really easy for you to tell them.

Just like our competitions, it’s not just you that benefits. We also give an additional 50% of prize money to your chosen charity too.  

What to Write about

You could write a review of your best Oxfordshire restaurant experience (or your worst), review a show you’ve seen, tell us about some fascinating local history, or highlight an issue in your community.

You don’t have to be a super writer to give us your opinion, you just need to have something interesting to say about life in Oxfordshire.

How to Submit your story

How much do we Pay?

We pay you up to £20 per piece (A piece should be a minimum of approximately 500 words. 500 words is basically one page of A4 when typed in a standard font.). If your piece is less than 500 words then we would offer you a bit less.

Pictures Please

We would love pictures to accompany your piece, especially if it’s a local story, historical or similar, as pictures are fantastic at keeping stories vibrant. If your piece is a review of a restaurant, show or concert, etc. they’re not always essential – but it does help.
