Why you should write for the Cambridge Tab this term

We want YOU this Michaelmas


Do you want creative freedom, fun socials and free Jack’s gelato? Then look no further! Here are all the reasons you should apply to be a writer for The Tab (or a section editor, or part of the social media team).

Flexibility and creative freedom

Write what you want when you want to. Did the king rock up to your lecture halls (true story) or do you want to write about playing Rock Paper Scissors?

Write as much as you want, when you want to. No minimum, no expectations, no pressure.

 The best socials and incentives

We are very proud of our great community and even better editors 🙂 Pub trip anyone?

Plus, who can resist the allure of FREE Jack’s as a reward for winning ‘article of the week’? Not to mention opportunities to get free tickets to ADC shows, to interview celebs from the President of Armenia to WillNE, and even to get complementary meals from restaurants in exchange for a review!
