Get Involved!

Want to write for us? We’d love to hear your article ideas. Contact us with a short one or two sentence outline at, or get in touch via our social media. We don’t require professional-style pitches, and will work with you to outline your piece if needed.

We believe that journalism should be accessible to all, so we don’t require any previous writing experience. You can contribute as and when you like, and we’re happy to work with you to manage any deadlines amid the stresses of a busy university term. Equally, we welcome pitches from everyone – including those in Oxford and beyond. We have previously published content from non-Oxford students and alumni, so please get in touch if you’d like to get involved.

We also have a writers’ group on Facebook which is open to all – simply join here for new commission releases and general updates.

Feel free to sign up for our email newsletters for commission updates and general news from OHR. We promise not to spam you!

We switch up our editorial team frequently, so if you’re interested in joining us and contributing to the history scene in Oxford, please fill out our quick form here.

Want to get involved but want a lower time commitment? We’re looking for college reps to spread the word about the publication! This would involve occasional posts to your JCR/MCR page, giving you the opportunity to meet new people, get more involved with History at uni and learn more about the “behind-the-scenes” of the publication. Sign up here!

If you have any general enquiries, please contact the Editor-in-Chief at
