The Leicester Tab is back and we want YOU!

Fancy writing for us?


Want to be part of the best student news site in the UK? How about publishing that story you drunkenly wrote in your iPhone notes about the best chicken you ever ate? Now's your chance, buddy!

Whether you're an aspiring journalist, a keen photographer, or just a Maryland connoisseur, The Leicester Tab wants you to join the team.

With thousands of monthly readers and a chance to publish your stories to the masses, you might just become the next Louis Theroux about campus.

Stories can be as ridiculous, hilarious, or straight-to-the-point as you like. We love a juicy news piece as much as the next person, but stories about your favourite dog in Leicester are just as good too.

Our student writers have gone on to work for companies like Vice, Buzzfeed and The Guardian. Ooh la la.

So, how could you say no? Send us over a pitch idea to get started – you can drop us a message over on our Facebook page.

We'd love to see your faces at The Bowling Green on 30th October (7pm) to talk ideas, have a few pints, and get you started at The Tab. See you there!
