Why you should write for the Tab Durham
tl;dr – it’s fun
With our open meeting tonight at the Library Bar, here are a few reasons why you should write for The Durham Tab.
To write stories students care about
To get a head start in Journalism
Tab writers often get their stories picked up by national media, and have broken stories later picked up by The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Guardian.
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 have fun
Where else can you rinse the Durham stereotype and call out Hatfielders for being posh and weird? We do socials as well, don't worry.
