Anticipations is proud to provide political writing for young people, by young people. This year, to encourage a diversity of opinion, Anticipations has recruited a great team of contributing writers from all over the UK.
Charlotte, Jack and Ben are delighted to announce the new team below:
Noah Froud is from East Lancashire and a final year politics student at Cambridge University. This has given him a varied experience of working and campaignin in old industrial towns, Tory voting-market towns and more metropolitan Cambridge. The tensions (and actually the surprising number of commonalities) between these very different areas informs his writing.

Lily Madigan is from Medway. She is a teenage political activist and the first transgender person to be a Constituency Labour Party women’s officer. She has ambitions to be the first transgender MP.
She tweets at @madigan_lily.
Maura respresents Coxhoe Division on Durham County Council, where she is cabinet support member for Children and Young People’s Services. In her community, she is chair of governors at Cassop Primary School. All views expressed are her own, and not that of the council.
