(Scots Law) A common; a piece of land in which two or more persons have a common right.


The Commonty is a free access network for the creative community of South West Scotland. Please submit your material for publication to:

- please submit copy as either a Word document or pasted into the body of an email...please try and keep your copy concise (approx 300 words)
- send an image to accompany your post

We will do our very best to post your material on the blog - however we are a small group of volunteers (if you want to help - get in touch) and sometimes we just run out of time. Also we reserve the right to edit and illustrate material submitted in the cause of concision and keeping the blog lively, informative and visually interesting.

Sponsors Logos
We understand that many arts projects have an obligation to their funders to show logos as part of all public information about their projects. In most cases projects need to pay for advertising and can, therefore, insist on whatever they wish to be published as part of their advertising. 

The Commonty is free and independent - we care about the look of our blog and reserve the right to refuse to publish logos that we are sent along with material for posting. In many instances arts projects have created their own visual material to promote their work and have integrated funder's logos into these - we will happily publish image files of promotional posters etc like this.

If you are sending us text copy but would like us to integrate sponsors logos/credits into a post on The Commonty for you, we will do this at a cost of £50 per logo. Please make cheques payable to The Commonty May Day Party Fund and send to The Commonty c/o The Stove, 100 High Street, Dumfries, DG1 2BJ. 
(Please include the cheque reference number with your email requesting a post with added logos - NB please include logos in jpg format.)

  1. Oh praise da Lord. Some of these unfathomable tracts remind me of my Dundonian namesake's scrivening...

    Your "Tam O'Shanter" is very fine,
    Both funny, racy, and divine,
    From John O'Groats to Dumfries
    All critics consider it to be a masterpiece,
    And, also, you have said the same,
    Therefore they are not to blame.
