The Leeds Tab is looking for new writers and we want YOU!

Come to the virtual open meeting next Monday at 5pm

The Leeds Tab is looking for new writers, meme-makers, social media gurus and all-round fun people to join the team.

You don’t have to have any prior journalistic experience and you don’t have to commit to anything at all.

We’re hosting a virtual meeting at 5pm next Monday, so if you’re a student at Leeds Beckett or the University of Leeds and you think The Tab may be for you, drop us a message on Facebook or Instagram and we’ll be in touch.

What is The Tab?

The Tab is a student news site with over six million monthly readers. As a student writer, your stories will be shared on The Leeds Tab Facebook page, to a readership of over 56,000– the best articles are shared across all of our pages, and can reach readers all over the country.

We break the biggest stories on campus.

This year we’ve written about the teenage gang who caused mayhem in Hyde Park over the course of one weekend, we ran a competition to find the best pet in Leeds, and we were all over the snowball fight that broke out between Beckett and Uni of, that lead to two men being fined £10,000 each.

Hundreds of stories published originally on The Tab have made national news.

We exposed the Warwick boys who made rape jokes in their group chat, the Coventry dodgeball team who wore anti-semitic slogans on their white t-shirt social, and the Cambridge student who set fire to a £20 note in front of a homeless man.

Why should I write for The Tab and not somewhere else?

The Tab is a nationwide online publication with a much wider readership than other Leeds student papers, and will give you an insight into how modern media works.

The Tab HQ team in London is always on hand to offer journalistic advice and training. With their help, you’ll learn how to make your writing stand out.

Tab alumni frequently go on to work for famous publications all over the world, including VICE, The Times, and Vogue. Just this year, former Tab student writers started jobs at The Telegraph, The Sun, and Cosmopolitan.

If you think this may be for you, find us on Facebook or Instagram and drop us a message.
