Cambridge Tab Takeover

Now you can tell us how much you hate us. 

| UPDATED cambridge students Editors Freshers tab team the tab University of Cambridge

Here’s the editorial team for Michaelmas 2016.

The Tab editorial team changes every term, with a new group to edit the articles of Cantabs whose egotistical desire to actually be read outweighs their fears of public hate. Also for those who have a burning desire for stash, including – but not limited to – tshirts, mugs, stickers and condoms.

For anyone who wants to get published in Cambridge’s most-read student newspaper, message the relevant editor below, add them on Facebook or join the writers’ group. For all the keen freshers out there, come say hi and sign up at the Freshers’ Fair on Tuesday and Wednesday.

For best results, use in public places so everyone knows you write for The Tab

The best way to get in touch with section editors and get involved is to come along to a writers’ meeting. The first meeting of term will be held on Friday 7 October at 6pm at The Maypole.

The easiest sections to start writing for are:

  • [email protected] if you want to try writing up some short, fun stories.
  • [email protected] if someone or something is particularly annoying you (fellow students, CUSU, slow-walking tourists)
  • [email protected] if you want to write something hilarious and/or inane and/or ridiculous

Contact the News team if you’ve got exciting gossip or want to leak a scandal that you think we should know about. Or you can anonymously tip us off using Tab Tips.
