Here at The Slant we’ve set ourselves the lofty goal of providing discerning UK readers with an alternative take on the news, current affairs and issues that concern us all on these little islands of random climate we call home.
By taking an approach to reporting the news that leaves room for opinion, sarcasm and some traditional Great British cynicism, we aim to poke fun right where it needs poking and expose the ridiculousness and stupidity lurking in high places, not to mention a few low ones.
Does that sound like your cup of tea? Are you are a UK-based writer (amateur or professional) or, alternatively, a writer who can appeal to, and cover topics and issues relevant to, a UK audience? Can you write about the news in an intelligent, engaging style, with humour, wit, and, what the hell, maybe even (if you’re feeling extravagant) a bit of panache as well? If so, we want to hear from you!
All you need to do is write an article for us on something from this week’s news and send it to us using the form below. The article should be roughly 200 to 300 words, include a headline and sub-title, along the lines of those seen on our front page, and fit into one of the following categories:
- politics/current affairs
It must be a unique piece, not published anywhere else, and must be all your own work. If we publish your article we will let you know as soon as possible and give you access to our writers area so that you can post more easily in the future and interact with other The Slant contributors. If you receive no response from us within a couple of days then we haven’t accepted your contribution this time, but please feel free to try again another time.
We look forward to you joining us. If we really like you, there are Jammie Dodgers!
