Students produce “best journalism by Brighton students since 2013”

The first Overtime magazine goes to print this week, after a Newsweek that produced “the best journalism, the best writing and the best-looking pages completed by students since I joined the University in 2013”, according to senior lecturer Ben Parsons.

The student-led publication was previously produced in a newspaper-style format. This year, the magazine style has allowed the students to have more creative freedom, according to editor-in-chief Kieran McGinley.

“It’s certainly different from last year, where articles were much more news-based.” He said. “Now it’s more laid back: we’re running more features and giving people a chance to write about what they want to write about.

“Encouraging that has been fun.”

The publication was produced by second and third year students at the Hastings campus, with first-years in Eastbourne taking on the digital side of things.

The publication covers current affairs, sports and entertainment is aimed at a student readership.
