ℹ️ About this form

This form is for use by Civil Service LGBT+ Network volunteers.

It can generate an email to the website administrators telling them you want to submit a blog post, and giving them all the information they need. Alternatively, it you can use it to generate a text file that you can send to the website administrators as an attachment.

Complete the information in the form below and then select ‘Generate email’ or ‘Generate file’.

Further guidance on how to use this form is included below.

🎨 Formatting and styles

Our website uses plain text files to generate content. If you need to include links or formatted text, you can use Markdown syntax. For example:

To create... Type...
Bold text **Bold text**
Italic text _Italic text_
Hyperlinks [Hyperlinks](//

📸 Using images or files

If you would like to include an image or file as part of the post page, you need to send those to the website administrator as attachments to an email.

Images must be in .jpg, .gif, .png or .webp format. Do not send images to us in a Word Document – we can't always extract them and will not be able to use them.

Files must be in Open Document Format, Microsoft Office or .pdf format. We prefer to use Word files because we can turn these into accessible documents more easily.

🚨 Reminder

Everything we publish is on the open internet. Do not send us something to include that you are not comfortable having online.

Everything we do must be in line with the Civil Service Code. That means we must act with honest, integrity, objectivity and impartiality.
