Our mission

Over the last few years it’s been clear to me that people want a platform where they can read articles on subjects that interest them from people that interest them, whether that is politics or something like craft beer or fly fishing. They don’t just want to read the editorial line of a newspaper – they want to read from the people that the newspapers are writing about.

I was frustrated that there wasn't a central place where I can find articles from people that interest me or have a conversation with people I don’t know around topics I'm interested in. 

So I created the UK's first social newspaper, WriteYou.  

My mission – to shake up the way people consume news, with newspaper formed from opinion and the views of our writers. We are a non-partisan social network for news. 

We've created a platform that allows contributors to write as little or as much as they like completely unedited. We are currently at the very beginning of our journey and will continue to grow the platform over the coming months and years. 

If you have something interesting to say please email [email protected] to apply for an account. Once we've approved you, you can write as much or as little as you want. We don't approve everyone, but we do approve those who we feel will interest our readers.
