Leeds University Union Science Magazine (LUUSci) is an award-winning online magazine. Previously known as LuSci, the magazine has a newly elected committee and has undergone major updates, including a brand new website, branding, and the establishment of new and exciting collaborations with other LUU societies. This is the third year of LUUSci as a LUU society, meaning we can gain extra support and benefits for the magazine and its members. Please join our Facebook group to keep up to date with new developments, plans for the future, to allow you to see newly published articles from our ever-expanding group of writers, and to see employability opportunities within your faculty and University-wide. 

We are currently looking for writers from all levels, and welcome all abilities. Writing for the society will expose your work to both internal and external audiences, will allow you to develop your writing experience, and will look fantastic on your CV - many institutions and employers have expressed a great interest in LUUSci.

Popular Science Writing: Meet the experts

On the 8th March we hosted LUUSci's second major writing and networking event. With talks by Sue Bowler, Myles Power and Sarah Venugopal, on topics ranging from how to get into editing to GMO protests! There was also pizza.


Writing Workshop

To our first event we invited guest speakers Dr Pete Etchells, a lecturer at Bath Spa University and scientific writer from the Guardian, and Dr Catherine Walshe, a senior lecturer at Lancaster University and Editor-in-chief of the journal Palliative Medicine. Our two speakers spoke about writing popular science and in academia, finishing with a Q&A session.


Writing Competition: 

We hold writing competitions for interesting pieces every semester. The winners receive cash prizes of £20 for 1st place, £10 for 2nd, and £5 for 3rd. The first competition's winners, chosen by Pete Etchells, were announced at the first Writing Workshop.


So come write for us, we'd love to work with you!
