Do you want to be the voice of Welsh students? Come write for The Tab Cardiff
Write for the biggest student publication in the UK
The Tab Cardiff is a news site run by Cardiff students, for Cardiff students. What’s not to love? Writing for us is a great way to boost your CV and writing skills, and make some new journalist friends. No prior journalism experience is needed, and it doesn’t matter what course you do, anyone can get involved. This is the exact type of work experience employers look for, and you can do it from the comfort of your own home (or bed if you want.)
As a writer, you can find out and report all the latest news on campus before anyone else, write about your favourite places in Cardiff (it’s a great opportunity to explore the city), and make lots of new friends at The Cardiff Tab socials. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, come along to our open meeting on Thursday 6th October at 6pm in The Taf at the SU.
What is The Cardiff Tab?
The Cardiff Tab is part of a larger student news site, The Tab. The Tab is a news site curated just for students, with over five million monthly readers, and local sites at over 30 universities across the UK. Articles published by The Cardiff Tab will be posted on our social media platforms which, combined, have over 14,000 followers. Most notably our Instagram has over 13,000 followers. We have also just launched a TikTok account so if you would prefer to create video content alongside or instead of written content, it is very welcome.
The Tab Cardiff covers stories that affect or relate to students at not just Cardiff University, but the University of South Wales, and Cardiff Met also. However, if it’s a big story we also cover Aberyswyth and Swansea or any other Welsh universities as The Cardiff Tab is the only Tab branch in Wales.
Over the last year, we covered a range of exciting stories, from fun pieces like Our guide to celebrating St David’s Day just like a true Welsh person, or rating the best vintage shops in Cardiff to more serious news pieces, including when a woman was sexually assaulted on the Taff Trail near Blackweir Bridge. Whatever you enjoy writing about, we have opportunities for everyone.
Why should you write for The Tab Cardiff?
