“I wrote an article for the magazine about helping students with homesickness at university,” said student journalist Anna Torrence. “I have never worked with a magazine before so I thoroughly enjoyed getting a brand new experience. I enjoyed having my own creative freedom in writing my article and collaborating with others.”

This issue includes a range spotlight pieces on the best Manchester has to offer, providing lists of events, useful contacts, opportunities, and advice on where to eat.

Features cover themes such as overcoming homesickness, how to avoid the trap of Buy Now Pay Later schemes, and ways to up your sustainability on a budget.

Other student contributors expressed the value of their experience, and their enjoyment of being involved in such a project. MA publishing student and magazine editor, Jenny Li, said: “There are lots of skills that students can learn by being part of the magazine, especially those considering a future in journalism or editorial, as well as having creative writing opportunities.

“It’s also a chance to connect with the student community and grow your network.”
