Gain valuable journalism experience by writing for a student publication.
This module gives you hands-on experience in writing for a publication. You are assigned a mentor (member of our academic staff) who will oversee your role as writer for an online publication, for one edition of that publication
With so many would-be writers around, publishers can afford to be very choosy. Most will only accept work from writers who have already been published, but getting that first work published can be a daunting and difficult task. Many very good writers just never get published at all.
This module provides our students with just what they need: an opportunity to get work published. On graduation, you will have at least one work published (maybe more) in a publication that you can show to potential employers, which will increase your chances of being employed or published in the future.
