The Bournemouth Rock is a newspaper set up by students at the University in 2012. An issue was published every two weeks. I was a reporter for the news section. Here is a sample of some of the work I produced.
News Not Nipples
This story is about the ongoing No More Page Three campaign lead by Lucy Holmes, aimed at banning the Page Three girl in the The Sun newspaper. It features interviews with Lucy Holmes, glamour model Nicola Rocco, Chloe Cook – Head of the Feminism Society at Bournemouth University – and campaigners outside News International. It is the print counterpart to the radio feature I also produced. The story made it to the front page of the newspaper and continues on page three!

I originally produced this story for a television package for BUZZ News. It features interviews with Fiona Cownie, Head of Student Experience at the Media School at Bournemouth University, and CEO of Underground Pass – an essay writing company.
Baby bump art business booming
Shortly after I picked up on this story, so did the Mail Online. It was an local and original story and I also made it into a feature with an accompanying video for BUZZ News Online.
