Help to Shape ‘the welsh agenda’


As part of the IWA’s ongoing commitment to better reflect and represent all of the people and places of Wales, we are actively seeking three new members for the Editorial Group of the welsh agenda.

What is the welsh agenda?

the welsh agenda is the flagship journal of the Institute of Welsh Affairs, and one of Wales’ leading current affairs magazines. Printed twice a year and now running to more than sixty editions, from spring 2020 the magazine has been merged with its sister publication, formerly known as clickonwales, into a single publication platform combining print and online, under the banner of the welsh agenda.

What is the Editorial Group?

The Editorial Group meets three or four times a year to help the IWA’s editorial team to commission a wide range of articles on all aspects of Welsh life. The Group generates engaging ideas that are reflective of all Wales’ people and communities, and focused on making Wales better. The Group works collaboratively to identify key issues affecting Wales, and actively works to build relationships with potential contributors, with the aim of diversifying our publications.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for people who are passionate about making Wales better. You will be curious about all areas of Welsh life, especially ‘politics’ and ‘culture’ in the very broadest sense of each word. We are particularly interested in hearing from younger people, women, people with lived experience of race, migration or disability and those who live in north Wales, mid and west Wales or the south Wales valleys. Opportunities for remuneration exist for those in underrepresented groups.

How do I apply?

We’d like to hear about you – and your ideas.

Please send us:

  • A brief biography of yourself (written in the third person, 150-300 words)
  • Three ideas for articles you would like to see commissioned by the welsh agenda (online and/or in print). Where possible, please specify who would author each piece.

Please email your bio and ideas with the subject line ‘Editorial Group’ to by Monday 30 September 2020.
