Why you should write for your student newspaper
Share This Article:
If you’re looking for a fresh start at university, and you’re worried about making a huge commitment on extra-curricular activities, then you should think about writing for a student newspaper. There are a lot of benefits to being Clark Kent; journalist by day and super-student by night. Here are just a few to give you an idea about what makes writing for your paper so great. It’ll help you with your course Let’s face it, you’re in university so that means that you’ll have to write essays or reports for your coursework. With writing and anything else, practice makes perfect! If you regularly write into the paper, even it’s just short pieces, you’ll be able to keep your mind active helping you to structure your work, fix your grammar and be far more accurate all year round. You can find someone who has the same interests as you The thing about writing is that you’ll be encouraged to write about something that you’re interested in. People love to hear a unique voice about something you’re passionate about. If you are doing politics as your course and you feel engaged, then it’s best that you write about it! Or if you want to use writing to find an escape from school and you have a healthy interest in fashion or sports, then you’ll find that writing about something that you’re interested in will give you an outlet to explore and research all the things that you want to know about that particular topic. When your work comes out, someone will read it too (you’re writing for people!). This is a great way to connect with others who may have the same interests as you, or get someone hooked onto that obscure band that only you've heard of.
