The 2019 edition of Headlines, the alumni magazine of the LJMU Journalism department, is now live.

This year’s magazine, our fourth, once again showcases the work of LJMU graduates who are making their names in a wide range of careers, from national newspapers and broadcasting to publishing, arts marketing and charity PR.

We catch up with Joe Barnes who is on the Brexit front line at the moment reporting from Brussels for the Daily Express and Leigh McManus, who has joined the Daily Mail.

We hear from Lewis Phillips Calvert, who has launched his own magazine and from Arild Skjaeveland who turned his love for Liverpool FC into a career as a journalist on the Norwegian Liverpool Supporters Club website, which has an incredible 12 million views a month.

Meanwhile, magazine editor, Natasha Young, and trainee solicitor, Helen Turner, also share their news with us.

Headlines spotlights our graduates’ success in the 2018 O2 media awards and we celebrate our first wedding. Sam and Jess McDonnell, who met while studying on the final year Advanced Journalism Practice module, graduated in 2013 and tied the knot on a gloriously sunny day last July.

Programme Leader Jackie Newton said: “We are immensely proud of all our alumni and so it is a privilege to be able to tell their stories every year. It is also a great project for the final year students who research, write and design Headlines.”
