March 2013 – Starting To Write For What Culture

After finishing my university course I looked into writing online for various websites that seemed to be focused on areas that I loved. What Culture seemed to be a great match for me seeing as they covered film, TV, wrestling, sports, comics and gaming (which pretty much covers all of my great loved in life). They got back to me at the end of February 2013 and said I start writing features to be seen on their websites by millions of people which was a real boost for me.

I still write for them today and it’s a great chance for me to get almost anything I want to write seen by a lot of people. The staff also offer great feedback to help their entire writing staff. As you can see below, I started off with a range of stuff from a real passionate article about Doctor Who to a more humorous one about creepy film characters.

Below are the posts from March 2013 that were featured on What Culture:

Leeds Student Newspaper Articles

My (hopefully) long and fruitful journey into the field of writing got a real start when I started to get involved with the Leeds Student newspaper when I was in my third year of university. I absolutely adored my time at Leeds University and it felt great getting something I had written printed for the very first time. Attached to this post is a PDF file containing all of the pieces I did that were published in the issues that went out to students all around campus (though, sadly, the work I did that went up on their website has been removed as per their policy every academic year). There’s a whole bunch of different stuff in there, which I also loved getting the chance to sink my teeth into.

I reviewed a few films, covered the Thought Bubble comic convention (one of my other great loves I discovered at university was comic books), threw in my two cents about the Oscar season and even got my original article ideas published, including my thoughts on spoiler-heavy trailers and the abundance of CG in modern cinema.

All articles were published in various issues of the Leeds Student newspaper from September 2011 to May 2012.
