  1. yep, had some gremlins in the copy/paste stage, i realise – edited accordingly. my mistake!

  2. Can you tell us more about what they’re doing to ensure diversity at the submission stage?

  3. So far we’re just making sure to spread the word as far as possible. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
