Why you should write for The Tab Brookes
It’ll be a better decision than a night out in Atik
With our open meeting on Tuesday 29th at 19:00 in City Arms, here are a few reasons why we want you to write for The Tab Brookes.
To write stories students care about
Last term we reported on the devastating news of Purple Turtle closing down. Which was shortly followed up by a Brookes third year student creating a petition to keep Purple Turtle.
We also get the opportunity to attend anticipated events, such as Gentlemen's Fight Night, and reporting on everything from best dressed to the tea from the event.
Let's not forget our regular Clubbers of the Week.
To start a career in Journalism
Tab writers have gone onto write for The Times, The Telegraph, Vice, The Sun and The Mail to name a few.
Flo Perry, Editor at Buzzfeed, and a former Durham Tab writer said: “The Tab is a unique platform for students to get their voice heard. There is no other organisation offering such creative freedom with such a big audience. It was the most fun thing I did at uni, and I wouldn’t have the job I have now without it.”
To meet new people and have fun
At the end of it, it's all a bit of fun and a chance to meet people who share the same passion. We do go out too, we're not that boring. Regular socials is what keeps us sane through exam season.
