We welcome contributors

Absolutely any Liberal Democrat party member is welcome to get involved with Lib Dem Voice, and we especially welcome opinion articles. These should be original pieces of writing, not previously published elsewhere. Please see our Write for us page for more details.

Lib Dem Voice is also committed to publishing opinion articles from non-Lib Dems which we think will be of interest to our readers. Please email the Co-Editors if you have an idea for an article.

Our editorial policy

Lib Dem Voice does not belong to any supposed wing of the party: it is a neutral platform where the views of all members are welcome, both as articles and comments. The site’s editorial team comprises a diverse range of party members, each of whom is free to put forward their own views while maintaining an overall balance of coverage. Queries or complaints about the balance of coverage can be directed to the Editor.
