What is the West London Wick?
The West London Wick is UWL’s first student newspaper, with all articles, photos, and video footage contributed solely by UWL students.
With an editorial focus on Student Life, Entertainment, Sustainability, and LGBTQ+ topics, it’s our aim to act as an a platform for writers and photographers within The University of West London.
By highlighting and publicising the activities of the University of West London’s student societies, we also hope to shine a spotlight on all of the fantastic extracurricular events organised by UWL’s students, as well as to increase overall student engagement and improve student life within UWL.
Whether you’re looking to bolster your portfolio and develop new skills by working on one of our stories, or you can’t wait to attend our social events to meet fellow creatives and network with industry professionals, there’s never been a better chance to get involved in student media within UWL.
Though an affiliate of the University of West London and the University of West London’s Student Union, all opinions and views expressed in The West London Wick are solely those of its writers with no direct conjunction to the university.
The West London Wick is partners with The MNGR, Blast Radio, UWL's LGBTQ+ Society and The UWL Sustainability Society.
Write For Us
Our articles are split between those pitched by UWL students, and those drafted to our members.
Our Editorial sections are Student Life, Entertainment, Sustainability, and LGBTQ+ topics.
Articles that require live coverage and photography, such as those covering UWL News and Societies, will each be offered to our members. Our team of contributors can then choose which articles they would like to cover, with either a written piece on the event, or original photography and videography.
All UWL students can also pitch and write Entertainment and Student Life articles with us, even non-members.
Please send all pitches to our official email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hold monthly collaborations with other societies, as well as regular social events and trips to museums and art exhibitions.
