Cambridge University Caving Club will publish a journal in 2014, compiling many kinds of caving material around the club. Either if you are a current member, ExCs, expoer or friend, you're welcome to publish your piece: short or long written tales, pictures, drawings... anything that has made CUCC in recent years.

You can either:

a) point a url address where the piece to publish is located (such as a blog, somewhere in expo.survex.net...)
b) send your piece(s) to the following email address: caving-journal at srcf.net


FURTHER DETAILS about pieces for the journal are below.


The journal will be printed in book or booklet format if there are enough articles. For inspiration see Cambridge Underground 2012
