Magazine Pages

This guide explains how to search for magazine articles and how to submit articles to the magazine for publishing.

Article Search

The search for articles is best started by first finding a British location.

LayStar is UK location-based. A location could be a village or town such as Luton, or it could be a county, such as Bedfordshire. A location could also be found by using a UK postcode.

The location search form is located at the upper-left corner of the page. As well as location fields, it also contain search fields related to article searches. For example, article categories.

Location / Postcode field - enter a UK village, town, city or county, or a UK postcode. The first few characters of a location or postcode may be used to widen the search. For examle TR will find all locations with postcodes starting TR.

Location or Postcode selectors - below the location field are two selectors. Click one to determine whether the search is by postcode or a location. Following the example above, unless selected, the TR search could produce postcodes starting TR or towns or cities starting TR.

If a UK location doesn't appear on LayStar, perhaps you can follow the process to submit it. LayStar grows with your input.

Article Submission

It is simple to submit articles to LayStar.

The first stage of the process is to get your location listed on LayStar if it isn’t already. You may wish to enter the location that is related to your article, e.g. you live in Manchester, but the article is all about Newquay in Cornwall. Enter the name of the location, or just the first few characters, and follow the on-screen guide to submit the location.

Once the location is selected, a link will be visible near the top of the page, ‘submit material to the LayStar Magazine’. Click the link and follow the on-screen guide from there on.

Please note that you will need to register and set up an account with LayStar for article submissions. This enables you to manage your submission at any time in the future.
