Irish Broad Left hosts discussion and debate in articles that we commission from left activists, grassroots campaigns, community groups and NGOs, academics, political representatives and other individuals.

We also accept submissions. We reserve the right not to publish submissions received.

We particularly encourage young people, women, and members of marginalised communities to contribute.

While opinion and debate is welcome, only respectful debate will be published on our site and in our comments section.

While this is primarily a site for Irish activists, we also publish articles from European and international Left activists. We are also happy to publicise announcements and upcoming events from Irish Left campaign groups on our website.

Articles should generally be around 800-1,000 words.

News and announcements may be shorter.

If you want to submit a longer piece, we occasionally publish lengthy articles of up to 3,000 words in an ‘in-depth’ category.

Articles should be written in an accessible, journalistic style as opposed to an academic or jargonistic style.

To submit a completed article, or to approach us about an article idea, please email us at using ‘Submission’ in the subject line.

Please include a brief 1-2 line description of yourself. You may also include a link to your personal or organisation’s website and your Twitter handle.
