Have you got the write stuff?

Have you got the write stuff?

STARTING college this autumn? Enjoy writing?

If the answer to both these questions is yes, then read on, because were looking for a new contributor for our College Calendar series.

This series sees two students write a monthly update, sharing the highs and lows of student life. But one of our contributors is graduating so were seeking a replacement.

You could be going to any college or University to study any subject at any level. We just want someone who can write in an honest, informative and amusing way about student life.

So, if the idea appeals, send us 350 words called "College Expectations". Tell us what your hopes and fears are about starting college this autumn. It might touch on your expectations about your fellow students, the coursework, the new environment, the social life. Anything, really.

The writer of the best one, as chosen by the judges, will be asked to write an article each month for the coming academic year – and paid £60 for each one published. (Well also publish a selection of the best "College Expectations" articles.)

Entries must arrive by Jul 31, 2002, and, in addition to the 350 words, should include a few autobiographical details including how old you are, which college youre going to, what youre studying and why and what, if any, your farming connections are.

Send entries to: College Calendar Competition, Farmlife, farmers weekly, Quadrant House, The Quadrant, Sutton, Surrey SM2 5AS, or email tim.relf@rbi.co.uk
