Humanity Hallows is a platform run entirely by student volunteers with a passion for journalism and a passion for Manchester.

We are looking for writers, illustrators, filmmakers and photographers on an ongoing basis to help make Humanity Hallows an informed, inspiring, witty and opinionated collection of student voices and talents that make our city brilliant.

All Manchester Met students are able to apply and you don’t necessarily have to have worked for Humanity Hallows before—our only requirement is a demonstrable passion for journalism.

Working with Humanity Hallows is the ideal way for students to get that all important work experience while at university.
