Meet the Tab Team for Easter 2017

The Tab is under new management

After a gruelling period of selection, evolution and reincarnation, the Tab team is back for Easter 2017.

Although we can’t say things won’t change, we can guarantee that all the tasty gossip, hot opinions, zesty features and high quality jurnalizm will be here to stay.

If you fancy being published in the University’s most read newspaper, pitch an idea to one of our section editors via the email addresses below, come to the writer’s meetings and join the Facebook writers group. If you’re considering joining the editorial team next term, we strongly encourage you to write for us first. Section editors tend to be selected from our group of best writers.

For article pitches email: if you want to be reporting on the kind of stories that get the whole university talking. if you want your voice to be heard on the important issues we deal with each day in Cambridge. if your college is getting ignored in every “What X is your college” or you’ve got some new ideas to bring to the paper’s most light hearted section
