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. These are few of the articles I have written so far for it – and I do read over each article that is on there to make sure it is perfect for publishing!

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!

The Tab Trent
I wrote a couple of articles for university student media outlet The Tab, which both were quite popular in both my hometown and my university town – it was madness seeing my article being shared by my Facebook friends left right and centre!

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! However never fear, I will be doing more experience with them later on in the year as part of my course, and I have started to do music reviews for them. For now, here is a picture of the ones I had published in print:
