Get involved

Welcome to Impact!

Want to make an impact at your university? You’re in the right place – we’re passionate about writing the stories students want to read. Check out this video to see why now is the perfect time for you to get involved.

Any student at The University of Nottingham/member of the Students’ Union can contribute to the magazine and website. We have a wide range of sections and roles, so whatever you’re interested in, you can work with us.

No previous experience is needed, so even if you haven’t done anything like this before, you can get involved. Working for Impact has plenty of benefits and we won’t expect you to show up every week unless you’re elected to be an editor. Remember, we’re students too, so we know what it’s like when deadlines approach!

We have weekly meetings during term-time where you can meet with our editors and get commissioned there and then. Even if you aren’t sure what you’d like to write about, meetings are a great place to throw ideas around and pick up inspiration for your next article. Watch this space for meeting times.

All meetings take place in the Impact office (Portland Building C Floor, opposite the ‘SU Hub’ and next to the hairdressers).

To receive information about meetings, socials and other opportunities to get involved, you can sign up to our mailing list .

Get in contact with the section(s) you’re looking to write for, and our editors will be happy to help.

    Hi, I’m due to start my BA in English this week and I’d love to get involved with the magazine or website. I’d say I’d probably be stronger contributing to the film and television section (I have my own review site which I posted above) but I’d be open to suggestions about where you need help. Look forward to hearing from you!
    Thanks, Sarah

    Hi, I study Business and Economy in Contemporary China; but write poetry as a hobby and have few works published – I just wanted to know if I could contribute to the (Arts) Creative writing dept. for the Impact magazine.

    Hope to hear from you

    Kindest Regards,

    I was wondering when the first social ( Coco Tang) was on as I have been receiving mixed information about the dates and tickets .
    Hope to hear back soon.
    Yours Sincerely

      Hi Joanna! The social is on Tuesday 6th October. If you bring £4 to the Impact Office (C Floor, Portland Building) on Monday, you’ll be able to purchase a ticket there!

    I submitted an article idea to your Facebook message inbox last week, but am yet to receive a response.

    Should you require me to re-send the details through, please contact me via email – as the information contained within the proposal is sensitive.
