Recently I've been reading a lot of articles/tweets about journalism students needing more than just the traditional skills; they need entrepreneurial skills. Goldsmith's journalism department featured in this morning's Media Guardian for possessing those exact skills. It also mentions Birmingham, City, Newcastle... but not Kent.

So there I was, sitting at the start of the Power without Responsibility lecture, thinking we're going to have a big gap here after Christmas. At first, I tried to remember what free time felt like, failing that, I began to think of things that we could do in that time...
Perhaps the idea of a tabloid-style website wasn't popular, but can we just make a website? I don't mind if it covers solely students or a wider audience. We're halfway through our time at university now - isn't it about time that we started hitting the headlines?
You never know, we might all leave here, fail to become employed, and all those late nights of coffee-chugging, just to meet multiple deadlines, will seem pointless. Referring back to the second article I linked to - "With media jobs being cut, we are aiming to do it ourselves - to make a living from our journalism."
