You’ve heard of NaSTA and the SRA (national student television and radio associations) but SPA is relatively new to the family of national student media networks. The Student Publication Association held its first National Conference at SUSU in 2013 and we’re thrilled to announce that it’s back this year for 2015’s Conference!

Our campus magazines The Wessex Scene and The Edge will play host to a whole load of student publications from all over the UK at the conference later this year.

Chair of the SPA, Sophie Davis, said: “We were delighted with the quality of applications submitted. Having all sifted through some particularly impressive bids, we are happy to announce that Southampton University and SUSU will be taking up the mantel to host SPANC.”

 

Following a win for The Edge’s Claire Joines in the SPA Awards in 2014, awarded for her re-brand of the entertainment magazine, having the student media event on campus this year can only mean good things for the future of SUSU’s student media departments.
