Got something to say?

Tharunka is always looking for sleuthing or creative contributors to join the family. Help break new stories about UNSW happenings, or try waxing poetic about student life and despair about the latest current affairs. 

What your volunteering experience looks like depends on you. Whether you've just got one brilliant idea you'd like published, you're looking to build your portfolio and launch a career in journalism, you're a budding creative wanting to illustrate your love for pink-haired person who sits two rows in front of you, or maybe you don't know what you're looking for besides a vague feeling of wanting to get amongst it, whoever you are the Tharunka team wants to work with you. 

In whatever role, minor or major, you end up in you'll have the full support and mentorship from the Tharunka team who will working with you to improve your craft and get your work in the hands of the UNSW student community.
