Contributors are able to explore topics of their own interest as well as supporting the development of priority articles identified by the STAND News Editors. All work published with STAND News is expected to align with our core values and place emphasis on connections and crossover between local and global issues. Contributors will work with the STAND News Editor and various Section Editors. They also have access to regular trainings by industry professionals and experts to support their continued growth as writers and activists. This is a voluntary position.

About STAND News

The aim of STAND News is to provide a dynamic space for students in Ireland to learn more about global issues while focusing on stories of justice, equality and international development. Our team consists of voluntary students and recent graduates who come from a range of backgrounds but all have one thing in common: a keen interest in global issues and creating positive change. 

Our articles and content are focused on sharing what we learn about the connections between local and global issues. We remain committed to the spirit of student activism that drives us to hold this space for young voices and the dialogues we hope to nurture. We hope to foster compassionate perspectives and action in solidarity with our community of writers, readers, and beyond.
