Laurence Dodds is an assistant editor on the Telegraph's comment desk, commissioning opinion articles from a wide pool of columnists, pundits, and experts to make sure we stay definitively on top of each day's news.
Laurence joined the Telegraph's graduate trainee scheme in 2013 after an MA in Journalism from Goldsmiths College and a subsequent year's freelance privation. He spent two months as a general reporter at the Press Association, four months at the Newcastle Evening Chronicle, and one month each on the Telegraph's business, news, video and features desks. In January 2015 he was hired full time by the Telegraph.
As part of his job he also writes analysis and opinion about politics, technology, and culture, produces the Telegraph's morning politics briefing, and live blogs historical events. He tweets @LFDodds.
