Diverse journalistic experiences with The National Student

I’ve always enjoyed contributing to The National Student (TNS). Having been both their sports and tech editor, at different stages, I have a lot of experience of working alongside the TNS team and catering to their readership. The fantastic thing about writing for TNS was the wide variety of opportunities to write on different subjects.

I’ve written for TNS on everything from Buddhist robots to golf, via a live review of rap pioneers, The Sugarhill Gang. It’s made me a better writer and, importantly, a more flexible writer. Here is a selection of pieces on varying subjects that I have written for TNS…
