Contribute to The Growler

Our quarterly magazine newletter 'The Growler' is primarly composed from contributions sent in by our readers.

It is increasingly difficult to find new Shackleton related stories to publish but there are many who may still have a tale to tell or a few photographs to share and if you do, then our editor would love to hear from you.

Your contribution can be short or several pages long, but everything will be gratefully received. Our lovely magazine cannot exist without your contributions.
