The Jabberwock

[Eleanor Pilcher | Contributing Writer]

Welcome! To all returning students and freshers. The next three odd years of your life will be filled with new experiences, small-adventures and fun achievements. Whether these achievements are in sports, academia or writing.

This year marks the beginning of a new endeavour into the world of writing: The Jabberwock. A literary writing magazine specifically aimed at the University’s students’ writing and artwork.

You don’t have to be a creative writing or art student to submit, you don’t even have to have any writing experience. The team are looking for stories, poems, photographs and artwork from any Herts student about any topic whether it is based on fairytales, about an army of zombies attacking McDonalds, or the tale of their university life.
