How To Join The Spark Newspaper and Digital Teams

Reading University Campus Newspaper, The Spark Newspaper, prints once per month and is put together from start to finish by students.

We are looking for new and returning students to join the team as writers, photographers, illustrators, designers and editors.

Contribute To The Newspaper / Website

We are on the hunt for writers, photographers and illustrators to join our team. Please sign up to our free membership list here and select which mailing list you would like to join. You can also join our Digital team here. Make sure you come along to one of our Taster Sessions. The first is happening on 1st October at 11.30am, the second is happening on the 9th at 12pm. Both sessions will take place in the RUSU Boardroom (above RUSUs Reception).

Join The Design Team

No previous experience is necessary to be part of the design team, however it’s handy if you have used Adobe programmes previously. We will show you how to use InDesign and design pages of the newspaper, that we are printing that week. If you would like to sign-up for our sessions on 15th and 16th October please email v.purcell@reading.ac.uk to book your place.

Editorial and Committee Positions

We are currently taking applications for the following roles:

  • Marketing and Distribution Coordinator
  • Design Editor for The Spark Newspaper
  • Entertainment Editor for The Spark Digital Team
  • News Editor for The Spark Digital Team

Find out about these positions and apply for a role here.

Applications for all other Media Committee Roles open in the second term.
