New Matilda is independent journalism at its best. The site has been publishing intelligent coverage of Australian and international politics, media and culture since 2004. You’ll find new stories on the homepage daily.



The New Matilda news digest is the best way to keep up to date with our coverage. We publish three times a week – it lands in your inbox at lunchtime on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and in the evening on Sundays. You can sign up to the digest in the little box over on your right, headed ‘Free Tri-Weekly Digest’. Just throw your email address in – it’s a free service.



Our readers are our investors. New Matilda is predominantly reader-funded and remains fiercely independent, with no affiliation to any political party, lobby group or other media organisation. Become a New Matilda funder here.



We believe that robust media is fundamental to a healthy democracy — and there’s never been a more important time for independent media in Australia. With shrinking media diversity, and huge changes underway in delivery, there are fewer and fewer outlets publishing independent-minded journalism like ours.

New Matilda publishes compelling commentary on current events as well as breaking news and investigative journalism. We bring you fresh ideas and new information. We don’t duplicate the stories and perspectives available in other outlets.

Since 2004 New Matilda has published the work of over 1,000 writers. They are journalists, current and former politicians, lawyers, academics, critical and creative thinkers, bloggers, policy-wonks and satirists. Unsolicited submissions are welcome. Click here for information.
