Backbench is one of the largest current affairs blogs in the UK. We like to write a lot about Brexit, Britpop and bad weather (well, not so much the last one, but anyway).


We now want to branch out and to hear from writers in the United States. We want to hear your thoughts on Trump, the Midterms, socialism – the whole shebang.


If you’re interested, fill in the form below and one of our editors will get back to you as soon as possible (we’re in a different time zone, so probably even before you wake up).


You might not spell colour properly, and you're rubbish at soccer, but we look forward to hearing from you.
