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.

If you are willing to write regularly (i.e. once every two months), you might want to become a Commonwealth Correspondent. To learn more, send an email to [email protected] expressing your interest to join the network.
