Writing for YourCommonwealth

Share your stories and opinions

YourCommonwealth is a place where young people can write and share perspectives with likeminded individuals in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe and the Pacific.

Anyone can submit a short article to the site.

You don’t need to be a brilliant writer – you just need a bit of enthusiasm and a pen and paper (or preferably a computer) to take part.

You might want to write:

  • A short opinion piece about a subject that you care about or something that you have been thinking about recently.
  • A short news article about an event you have attended or been involved with (for instance, a campaign, conference, workshop or performance).
  • A short interview where you ask questions of someone you know or meet and record the replies.
