This is a little taster of my experience as a journalist so far. To read more about what I’ve done and if you’re interested in contacting me for work, you can view my CV: Eve Smallman CV.
I am the 2017 editor-in-chief for Nottingham Trent Student Union’s official magazine Platform. I have been responsible for promoting the brand, recreating the website, bringing it back into print and encouraging people to join. For my hard work, I have been awarded the Outstanding Commitment award at the Student Publication Awards 2018, as well as being shortlisted for Best News Story for my piece about the viral racist chant video at Trent.

I wrote a few articles during my time doing work experience at regional newspaper the Nottingham Post, however, I cannot locate the online ones as they recently updated their website! I now write music reviews for them, and will be covering Bloodstock for them this summer.

I worked here for about 9 months when I was sixteen, and was my first real taste of the magazine world. I was really lucky to be picked to be part of the 16-person team, after they whittled down the original bunch of 50-odd!

I have photographed at two events in recent months, and both clients were pleased with their photos. For the craft club submitted the photos alongside a news story as part of my university portfolio, and I received a first for them. These are a few pictures from each.
