Calling all Budding Writers!

Do you have pet subject or a burning passion you want to write about?

The North West Labour History Society is always on the look out for new contributors.

If it relates to the history of the working class in the North West of England then we would like to hear from you. Our contributors include labour movement activists, 'academic', 'amateur' and local historians, library and museum professionals and retired people.

We welcome contributions on the broad topic of labour history including all aspects of the life of the 'common people'. We are particularly keen to receive contributions from young people, students, so-called 'amateur historians' and those whose research or recollections might not otherwise be published. Perhaps you are unearthing the life of an ancestor who was a women's suffrage campaigner or early trade unionist. Maybe you have personal recollections of work in an industry, or of life in a community, that no longer exists.

The criteria for submissions is pretty informal. Please read and follow the Style sheet and notes for contributors, click here to download. We are happy to discuss your contribution and assist if we're needed.
