Hope you’re all well and that your summer holidays are super.
We are planning to get the first edition of our brand new campus magazine out in September. So we need you and your bright bubbling brains.
As it’ll be printed when the freshers arrive, perhaps we should do a guide to Medway – including all the best places to go out etc. I’m just chucking out ideas here, so voice yours too.
Maybe one of the Peak house boys would like to give their beloved home a proper fairwell as Liberty Quays opens this year? Prostitution and drugs makes a fairly good story right? I do believe Kent had a 20 (?) year contract with Peak House, which surprisingly got terminated. My landlord knows quite a bit about this – I can give you his number if anyone’s interested in writing it? It could be a funny one.
I guess there’s always the campaign about the empty building on campus and whether we really do need another pub, but perhaps that’d be better when there are some students around campus to have a chat with?
In the art world we’ve got the release of the rather controversial Medway calender, in September – it caused a stir among some in which they slammed the council for using it as a “rights grabbing raid”. Also, in August there’s a protest in Chatham about photographer’s rights, after a man was arrested for taking pictures of a policeman. It could be interesting.
I’ve also got a few other investigative pieces up my sleeve, but I need to look into them more before I mention what they are.
If you’ve got a spare few hours and fancy contributing to the magazine please let me or Jaak know. You can drop a comment here, facebook or email. Don’t be shy!
The chances are that if we have a printed version by the time the newbies arrive they'll be little eager beavers and sign up. There will also be no mad panic at the end of the year when it comes to handing in portfolios.
If no one wants to I will quit my job and write the whole magazine myself… and as much as I’d love to quit my job, I don’t think anyone can handle anymore articled on tea or Twitter. Think about it! Save your sanity…
