Whenever possible, regular writers will be offered the opportunity to take my place on press trips, when I am unable to.
I ask all regular writers to submit content twice a month where possible, just to retain consistency in my schedule. All blog posts should include imagery either owned by yourself or photos that are license-free from sites such as Pexels.
