Hot off the press, the 2015-16 edition of The English Academic Journal is now ready. All students on the English programme, whether single or combined honours, are entitled to a free copy, so please look out for the rather beautiful spiral bound journals (with a green cover this year), and pick one up from your personal tutor. Student interns from the English programme have been working feverishly over the summer to design a journal for all our students. Fuelled only by jammie dodgers [other jam-filled biscuits are available] and cups of tea [other beverages are… oh, you know this], the team have put loads of thought and time into designing this year’s edition. The journal is intended to serve both as a useful diary /planner and as a repository of incredible wisdom about (almost) all aspects of life as a student studying English at LJMU. It contains loads of information about your University and about Liverpool – places to go, people to see, things to do. There is a handy referencing guide, literary theory glossary, healthy living tips, loads of contact details, and templates to help you organise your studies. There is even a map, an elastic band, and a special PDP section. With this journal in your hand, and the LJMU English website bookmarked on your phone, you’ll be unstoppable. What more could you want?
