GUM has represented engaging and innovative student journalism for over a century. Founded in 1889, we have been awarded ‘Best Magazine’ twice by the Herald Student Media Awards – 2006 and 2008.
We pride ourselves on writing about issues that will engage, entertain and challenge students.
Our articles cover a multitude of topics and styles – personal essays, columns, think pieces, political commentary, pop culture… if you have an idea, we’d love to hear from you! We also make sure to include Glasgow-specific articles, including reviews of venues in Glasgow. The design of GUM has consistently been of the highest quality. We experiment with ideas, and the result is a fresh, interesting read.
There are weekly meetings – location confirmed on Facebook prior to – which are open to everyone. Contributors are welcome to pitch their own ideas, or write on one of the articles pitched by our talented editors. In addition to the weekly meetings, GUM runs workshops in a variety of media related skills, including graphic design, proofreading, computing skills, and editing (dates and venues TBA).
If you would like to get involved, contact the editor-in-chief (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the deputy editor (email@example.com) or come along to our weekly meetings – more info can be found on the Facebook page.
