About us

Who we are

Kent Bylines is a regional online newspaper that supports citizen journalism. Our aim is to publish well-written, fact-based articles and opinion pieces on subjects that are of interest to people in Kent and beyond. In doing so, we seek to demonstrate democracy in action by giving a voice to local people and holding our elected representatives to account.

This is made possible by our independence – both from government control and from the influence of corporate interests. Our political stance is progressive and internationalist. Our objective is to be part of the debate at a regional and national level.

Kent Bylines is a trading brand of March for Change Campaign Ltd.

We encourage our authors, all of whom are volunteers, to write about the things that energise them. New writers are welcome and we invite contributions from those with specific areas of expertise. We also welcome contributions from those with differing views and perspectives in order to encourage debate.

Our author profiles can be viewed by clicking on the name of the author in each article. This will also take you to a list of their other pieces so you can explore further.

Our content is always relevant to Kent, whether from a regional, national or international perspective. We cover special interest stories from our region to retain a strong local connection, but we include content of potential interest to readers from further afield to widen our audience.

Opinion pieces that reflect a progressive and internationalist perspective are balanced by other news, lifestyle and interest articles. We aim to ensure all articles are of a high standard and contributions are subject to review by our editorial team.

Extra vigilance will be needed to hold this government to account. We intend to take up that task for Kent. Kent Bylines will be steadfast in reminding our representatives of what they said and what they were elected to do.

Seeking Writers for Spring Equinox issue

Nature: Could you write up to 300 words on what you observe about nature in your patch of Kent this springtide? Birds, insects, animals, budding plants and trees- any or all, closely observed and described. Even better if you could send some copyright-free pics too.

The Budget: Now the Chancellor has delivered the budget, if you have any personal stories from Kent about how any of his proposals affects you, please let us know. For example, it would be interesting to hear from a Margate resident how best the town should spend the £22.2m about to be granted to it.

The Census: this is reaching households. Can anyone write on the importance of the census to political decisions? Or to analyse some EU citizen or migration statistics?
