We cannot wait for these three writers to join us at POI. Seb, Rebecca and Peter have been fantastic as guest writers, and we are so happy to announce that they will now be joining us at Junior Writers!
Junior Writer, Rebecca Selt
Our first new Conservative Junior Writer is Rebecca Selt. Having already written
some good articles in her first month, Rebecca is one to keep an eye out for. A
passionate writer with an eye for good debate means she is the perfect fit for a POI

writer and truly one to follow as he grows at POI.
