Write for LYON

Are you interested in politics? Are you under the age of 27? Do you have a view on the Labour Party or what it’s doing? The Labour Young Opinions Network would like to hear from you.

We publish blogs on this site and aim both to contribute to the debate within the Labour party and expose Young People to a wide variety of views so that they can make up their own mind and develop their political views.

We normally ask for articles of between 500 and 750 words and any submissions from new writers should also include:

  1. A 10-15 word short summary of what the article is about.
  2. A short biography of who you are.
  3. A picture for us to use.

Even if you aren’t a confident writer or haven’t had an article published before then still get in touch. LYON believes that it shouldn’t matter how confident you are with writing, if you have opinions then you should be able to contribute to the debate. LYON has a dedicated team who will sit down with you, talk about the issues you care about and help you put your ideas down into writing.

If you’re interested in contributing then please email labour.lyon@gmail.com.
