Welcome to Impact!
Want to make an impact at your university? You’re in the right place – we’re passionate about writing the stories that University of Nottingham students want to read. If you’re interested in finding out how we work, take a look at this short video:
Any student at The University of Nottingham/member of the Students’ Union can contribute to the magazine and website. We have a wide range of sections and roles, so whatever you’re interested in, you can work with us.
No previous experience is needed, so even if you haven’t done anything like this before, you can get involved. Working for Impact has plenty of benefits and we won’t expect you to show up every week unless you’re elected to be an editor. Remember, we’re students too, so we know what it’s like when deadlines approach!
We have weekly meetings during term-time where you can meet with our editors and get commissioned there and then. Even if you aren’t sure what you’d like to write about, meetings are a great place to throw ideas around and pick up inspiration for your next article. Watch this space for meeting times.
All meetings take place in the Impact office (Portland Building Level C, inside the Media Hub).
Get in contact with the section(s) you’re looking to write for, and our editors will be happy to help.
Keep up to date with news and meetings by following each section on Facebook:
For specific enquiries, or to submit articles, you can contact sections directly. Check out the ‘About‘ page or the ‘Editorial Team‘ page to find the right email address for your needs.
For general enquiries about getting involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi, I’m due to start my BA in English this week and I’d love to get involved with the magazine or website. I’d say I’d probably be stronger contributing to the film and television section (I have my own review site which I posted above) but I’d be open to suggestions about where you need help. Look forward to hearing from you!
Great! Email email@example.com and they can advise you on how best you can get involved. You should check out their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Impact-Film-Television/265453280173065 for more about what they get up to.
Hi, I study Business and Economy in Contemporary China; but write poetry as a hobby and have few works published – I just wanted to know if I could contribute to the (Arts) Creative writing dept. for the Impact magazine.
Hope to hear from you
Hi Osita – send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will let you know!
I was wondering when the first social ( Coco Tang) was on as I have been receiving mixed information about the dates and tickets .
Hope to hear back soon.
Hi Joanna! The social is on Tuesday 6th October. If you bring £4 to the Impact Office (C Floor, Portland Building) on Monday, you’ll be able to purchase a ticket there!
Carry on with the good work
Hi I am Sam. How can I get involved into sports event? I had a great interest to sports editor. Thanks.
Hi, I am a previous photographer for Ignite student magazine in University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus before.
Is the Impact in UK campus recruit for photographer as well?
Yes – Impact is always looking for new photographers. If you would like to get involved, you can contact the images editors on email@example.com
I submitted an article idea to your Facebook message inbox last week, but am yet to receive a response.
Should you require me to re-send the details through, please contact me via email – as the information contained within the proposal is sensitive.
I wanted to ask if i can get involved with the magazine,i have some new ideas and would want to get involved in the marketing/branding team of Impact.
I noticed you don’t have any music editors;I would love to get involved with the magazine in some capacity, preferably in relation to music. I’m not sure if you have an election process as I was actually studying in Ningbo last semester but I would love to talk to someone about this and arrange an interview or discussion of some sort.
The position of Music Editor actually doesn’t exist anymore. However, if you want to get involved with the magazine and write about music you will want to join the Entertainment section which now encompasses Music, Film & TV, Arts and Gaming. The easiest way to get involved is to join their Facebook contributors group at the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/100199990588998/?fref=ts and come to the Entertainment meetings or message the editors with ideas. Hope to have you in the team soon!
Dear Impact Magazine,
I’m a Critical Theory and Cultural Studies MA Student and would love to be involved on some level with the magazine, having been editor-in-chief at my last university’s English department’s magazine. I would love to contribute to writing articles (Preferred fields are Travel, Politics and the Arts) and I am also a capable proof-reader.
Let me know how to get involved. I can show examples of past work upon request if required.
My name is Saumya and I was wondering if I am able to write for Impact? I have attached the link to an article I have previously wrote. Please do check it out. I would love to hear back from you.
Of course! We are always looking for new writers, please refer to our Facebook page or email one of our editors for more information, these links can be found on the website.
I am hoping to be able to join impact as a writer, how would I go about starting this process?

Can the political system change without reactionary results from the far right and left but a more uniform approach to government and the governance. Is this possible?
