Manchester Metropolitan University students and staff gather to celebrate the 8th issue of student magazine Humanity Hallows.

At an event held at the infamous International Anthony Burgess Centre, an independent educational charity that encourages public and scholarly interest in all aspects and work of Anthony Burgess, the Humanity Hallows team invited students and staff to celebrate the launch of their newest edition of the magazine.

Manager of the Manchester Writing School James Draper, welcomed the guests and congratulated the team on their work. He said, “It is clear to see the editorial team have worked extremely hard on this new issue of Humanity Hallows. They have brought together designers, photographers and illustrators from across the University.”

He added, “I have been asked to give a special thanks to Nick Stone for his brilliant design input and Jacqueline Grima, the outgoing student Editor-in-Chief, for supporting the team to achieve their best work and for staying on for one last issue.”

The latest magazine includes interview highlights featuring columnist and anti-poverty campaigner Jack Monroe, novelist and editor Nicholas Royle, and music journalist and singer John Robb.

Based in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, the student magazine’s editorial team has grown exponentially over the past few years, with students from all across the university joining the ranks. The team also announced a range of vacancies available to steer the project going forward to develop a lasting legacy.

Manchester Met Student Media Officer Natalie Carragher, who manages the Humanity Hallows team, commented: “This is a very exciting time for the magazine. Over the next few weeks, our student editorial and design teams will be working on a re-brand in time for the summer issue. Watch this space!”

James Draper went on to announce that the magazine is working with new partners The Dealer App. The app offers exclusive discounts at Manchester restaurants while also encouraging people to give back a small fraction to a local charity Mustard Tree.

He said, “Homelessness is a huge problem in our city and an issue the Humanity Hallows would like to raise both awareness of and charity donations. By working alongside The Dealer App, Humanity Hallows is giving the students the chance to give back to their community and to help people who need it most.”
