TPN is a youth run left wing independent media site that produces news and political analysis. It is the most read student political media site in the country. 

​The People's News started as a group of writers on Quora who decided to set up a collaborative blog. We have since picked up some very talented writers along on the way. ​We apologise for the adverts on our site, however we are looking for a way to pay our contributors. If you want to help us out and support us, then please donate. ​Additionally, we are looking for new writers, should you want to join us please contact us at thepeoplesnewseditor@gmail.com.


We are currently looking to for new political writers to help grow our team. We have recently had a large increase in views and want to use this to expand. Unfortunately, we cannot currently pay our writers, although we hope to change this in the near future. We are also looking for graphic producers to produce political graphics and figures to complement our articles. If you are interested in regularly producing them for us, get in contact via the email. Writing for The People's News involves agreeing to contribute to the site regularly, however we appreciate that individuals will have other commitments. We pride ourselves in providing accurate, well written journalism, although previous experience in writing isn't necessary; our team of editors will assist you if you're struggling. We have a resident cartoonist, as well as a number of individuals who will design a graphic to support the argument of your article. We recruit individuals of any age, and encourage all our writers to actively use Twitter, as this is one of our most used forms of engagement. If you are interested in writing for us regularly then please contact us at the above address. Please include a short biography, as well as a sample article or example of your writing. We also rely heavily on freelance writing and so welcome all submissions. If you have an article or a pitch that you would like our editors to consider then please get in touch with us. Please include 'submission' and the title of the article in the subject line. Please attach the article with the Email, and we will try to reply to all submissions.

Adam Brosnan
Adam is an undergrad studying Psychology. Ideally he would be focusing on his degree, but he can't sit back and allow the government to continue to oppress the people they claim to serve. The thing that annoys him most is hypocrisy: if the Tories don't want to help the most vulnerable in our society, so be it - but how dare they come out week after week and pretend that there is nothing they can do to end the suffering caused by austerity.

He also writes for Gair Rhydd, the Cardiff University student newspaper, and does some rugby related writing.
