Hook will be going offline for the summer as the students who produce it make final preparations for their graduation.

The twenty-eight journalism students, designed and created the online magazine with support from tutors as part of the Multimedia Enterprise module toward their degree qualification.

Contributory writer for Hook, Jennie Kite said: “When we started did a lot of group work and had a lot of meetings for the choice of name for the website…We all had to come up with suggestions and pitch them to Dragon’s Den style.”

The Hook website took six weeks to develop with input from students who participated in every decision from developing the concept for a digital publication, designing the logo and visualising the website.

Since Hook became active the students have published almost 500 news stories and features by holding live news days every Friday, creating the atmosphere of a live newsroom.

Lizzy Bailey said: “I really like the whole concept of Hook and how we all work in teams each week. It actually feels like a real newsroom each Friday. I have learnt a lot more about targeting stories, working to a deadline and sub-editing. I have particularly enjoyed filming bulletins and videos to add multimedia elements to our website. I feel proud to be a part of creating the brand Hook at Falmouth University.”

Recalling her experiences, Alice Webber said: “For me, Hook has been an insight into the reality of a newsroom. Thrown in at the deep end, I think we’ve swum rather than sunk!”

Hook will return in the next academic year with a new group of students taking over the reins.

From the class of 2013-2016, good luck!
