Editorial: Behind the Spin – and you
Behind the Spin is a collective effort involving a number of volunteer editors and many more contributors.
We have a new editorial team this academic year, and are seeking new contributors.
We still have some editorial vacancies to fill.
Here’s how you can get involved.
You can approach the editor or one of our section editors (contact details are listed on the About page) with an outline of the article you’d like to write for us. Please approach us with original ideas – we won’t republish articles that have already appeared on your personal blog.
Here are five more ways in which you can get involved:
- You can put yourself forward for our #socialstudent ranking. This is a listing of the top UK PR students according to their Klout and PeerIndex scores. You can read about #socialstudent here.
- We always welcome offers to write book reviews, or to review films or TV programmes about public relations. Here’s a review of E4′s ‘mock-doc’ The Work Experience.
- We would like to publish more interviews with and profiles of prominent practitioners. Who would you like to interview? Who are your PR heroes or heroines?
- We need news about PR students and PR courses. Why not report on a guest lecture (like this one), or give us your news?
- PR degrees are one way into the industry, but there are others. We’d like to hear much more about the new PR apprenticeships, and also want to hear from those studying for professional qualifications.
But don’t just follow. Why not contribute and help to shape this online magazine for PR students and young practitioners?
