20/21 Waterfront Editorial Team

Hello, I am Bethan, the Editor in Chief this year and I have been involved on The Waterfront for the past year as a section editor. I am a third year English Literature and History student so writing really is my main hobby! My dream job is to work in editorial and publishing. My goals for this year are to increase the profile of The Waterfront and create a newspaper that really is for and by students. I want to produce content that is about real student issues and interests so please help us make a newspaper for you!

Hi, I’m Alex and I’m the new Deputy Editor for the Waterfront. My job is more of a jack-of-all-trades role than the others on the team. I’m the Editor-in-Chief’s right-hand so anything that she can delegate will fall to me. That could be following up on writers as we near deadlines or it could be getting in touch with people who we think could feature in the paper. If you have any questions about being a contributing writer or photograph, I’m happy to answer any and all questions. Here’s to a fantastic year! (waterfrontdeputyeditor@swanseastudentmedia.com)

Heya, I’m Angie and I am also (surprise!) a third year English Literature student. As a proofreader I’ll be making sure that the lovely articles everyone submits are grammatically correct before they get sent off for publishing. I can’t wait to help people with their work and am excited to read the things everyone sends in to us!

I’m Brooke and I’m studying my third year in English Literature with Gender Studies. I’m going to also be proofreading for the paper and hopefully having more input in the university community. I’m so excited to be involved!

Hello! My name is Cora-Jane and I will be the Arts and Culture editor for another year! I am a third year History and Politics student. I hope this year will be filled with articles exploring all the events available in Swansea as well as glimpses at all of the diversity found on campus. Hope you are ready for a great year!

I’m Efan, and I’ll be covering sports news from around the University for the 2020/21 academic year. I’m a third year Media student with an interest in sports journalism. If you’re a student athlete with a story you’d like to share, feel free to get in touch with me about getting your voice heard in the paper!

I’m Bethan, 20, and I’m in my final year studying English Literature at Swansea University. I am taking up the role of Advice and Relationships as part of The Waterfront. As it’s my final year in uni, I want to write some pieces informing other students about worries and questions I had as a Fresher. I want to provide an opportunity for people to request advice and help regarding different themes, from joining societies and making friends to living on a student budget. Aside from this, I want to welcome people to write their own pieces if they feel that they have advice to offer about their own topics. I can’t wait to get started!

Hi, I’m Rachel and I’m going into my third year studying English literature. My hobbies include photography, travelling and reading. As societies editor, I aim to promote smaller societies and create a column where committees can share their upcoming events and socials. I’m excited to cover taster sessions, meetings and events during freshers to help new students find a society suitable for them. I can’t wait to get started with Waterfront and share my ideas with you all!

I’m Sali, your Creative Writing Editor. I’m looking for work on a wide range of topics and subject matters, from a diverse and exciting group of talented writers. Let your creativity flow!

Hi, my name is Ashish Dwivedi, and I’m pursuing an M.Phil. in English Literature. I’ll be your “Literature/Non-fiction Writing” Editor this year. I’d be pleased to read book reviews, memoirs and biographies, interviews, opinion pieces, reflective writings, etc. Works by Nobel Laureates intrigue me, particularly; and I’d be personally looking forward to reading reflections about (1) Laureates themselves and (2) their works.

Hi! I’m Sophie, a PhD student researching machine learning techniques on social network data. I’m going to be the section editor for Science & Research this year, so will be highlighting global science news as well as research being performed here at the university. Outside of studying my interests are hiking, riding my horse, horror movies and, of course, writing!

Hi I’m Rhi a second year student studying media and communication. My hobbies include playing the alto and soprano saxophone. As the fashion editor I want to create a fun environment by experimenting and trying new things when it comes to fashion. I’d like to try styles that we’d normally avoid or see if we could shop solely at charity shops. If anyone wants to take part and write an article, email me at waterfrontfashion@swanseastudentmedia.com.

Hi! I’m Lucie, studying a masters in Communication, Media Practice and PR and the new editor of the Sustainability section. I hope to spread awareness of the most pressing environmental issues we are facing and inspire others to do their part in making the world a greener place.

If anybody would like to get involved with the new sustainability section, let me know here on Instagram or by emailing me. I look forward to chatting to you about your article ideas!

Hey! I’m Cat, the new music editor and official photographer! I’m currently studying an MA in Communications, Media Practice and Public Relations. Music and photography have both been major hobbies in my life, alongside, gaming and design. I love attending festivals/concerts as often possible and I’m also a singer and guitarist in a band.
With my position as a music editor, one aspect of the music industry I want to highlight is how we can all support music venues, musicians, and other music-based institutions during this weird time of COVID-19. As for my photography position I want to take as many photographs of the limited events that are going ahead, to show as many of you as possible the ways in which you can enjoy your student life – even during a pandemic.
If you’re interested in writing for the music section, please let me know as I’d love to have as many contributing voices as possible!
