Erin Croasdale
Hi! I’m Erin and I am going into my final year of studying History. This year, I have been honoured to be part of SAVAGE as Theatre Co-Editor; holding this unique role and working proactively with my fellow editor has increased my editorial skills and my analytical eye for detail.

Running for the role of Co-Editor in Chief, I aim to organise talks with industry experts, both from the arts and culture sector and from the wider journalism industry, to provide insights into career paths that may be possible for us post-university. I also plan to collaborate with our writers to consider new angles that we could apply to some of our sections; I know personally that writing for the theatre section while productions are halted has been a challenge this year, and can only imagine that other sections have been hit hard too. I hope to find different concepts our articles could include to keep our readers inspired.

As an enthusiastic writer and lover of arts and culture, I have had the best time participating in SAVAGE thus far. Having worked closely with this years’ Editor-In-Chief to brainstorm ideas and refine articles, I would love to work with section editors to offer advice and help develop skills. The expertise that has been passed onto me this year has been incredibly valuable and make me well-suited to the role. Our print editions have been a joy to work on and write for; I am very proud of what we have achieved and would be delighted to be chosen as an Editor-In-Chief!

Being able to express oneself has become more vital than ever during these unprecedented times. When everything else is uncertain, the comfort and certainty from self-expression and the sharing of wisdom, ideas, and creativity holds us together and becomes our strength. The SAVAGE journal continues to be an epitome of self-expression - sharing what matters most to each and every single contributor. Living in a filtered and censored society, I vow to value the raw, and out of norm perspective. I vow to spread the outreach of our journal and allow all genders, minds, races, cultures, and ideas a fair representation. As someone who has a deep appreciation for the arts, I vow to uphold and raise the standard of our journal thus far. Being elected as the Co-Editor of this journal will not only allow me to share my passion for writing and editing, but will allow the journal to become home to the shy poets, the arts & culture enthusiasts, the outspoken ones, the emotional, the intellectuals, all alike. I am well acquainted with the inner workings of a publishing house as I co-founded and led my high school newspaper. Having leadership experience as my high school & MUN president, I have also developed strong leadership and teamwork abilities. Although editors are not central to publishing, they play an essential behind-the-scenes role in cultivating and polishing stories ready to be appreciated by the public. Which is exactly what I hope to do this coming year.
Stephanie Frank
I’m a proud and longstanding member of SAVAGE Journal and I would like to give back to the society, as next year is my last at UCL. As an Editor-in-Chief for SAVAGE, I want to emphasize inclusivity and the power of individual voice. I want to help encourage writers to pursue their passions and overcome obstacles of fear and self-doubt.

Having worked in the journalism industry professionally for the past two years, I believe I’m a strong candidate for this position. Last summer, I completed a work placement with an intelligent German fashion magazine, illustrating my ability work well in a creative team. In this position, I reviewed, copy-edited and uploaded articles from contributing writers on a daily basis; exercising vital skills as an online editor. I also wrote for their online magazine to a professional standard on a daily basis and I was published in their Autumn 2020 print edition, evidencing my strong writing skills.

I would consider myself a self-starting individual, who is passionate about storytelling through art and photography and is able to embrace any task with a positive outlook. As Editor I hope to continue learning from my peers and aim to inspire likeminded individuals.
Ruby Anderson
Hi, I’m Ruby and I am a second year Art History student. My role as Art and Design editor has been an integral part of my university experience this past year, so I would love to continue at SAVAGE as Co Editor-in-Chief. Following work experience placements at ES Magazine and The Guardian, my love of print media has not abated. I was thrilled to take on a more hands-on position editing a section so close to my heart and really refine my editing skills. My aim for the art section was to encourage submissions through a weekly prompt schedule, beginning with exhibition reviews and since developing into a widespread schedule of prompt topics inspired by current debates in the art world. Working in this way has ensured our content be far more regular (making editing more manageable!), and that what we publish responds as poignantly as possible to all the events in arts and culture happening around us. I think working in this manner would be productive for all sections of SAVAGE!

I have also enjoyed reaching out to various collectives and conducting interviews. I had the pleasure of interviewing Ziferblat London and where’s the frame?, two new platforms for promoting art. As EIC, I would strive to make these types of connections across SAVAGE as a whole, both inside and outside UCL. This would not only inspire exciting editorial content, but would create even more opportunities for collaborations, guest appearances and socials, another side of this role I am super excited by.

As an approachable, enthusiastic and dedicated member of the SAVAGE community, I would love to continue to ensure the Society is a welcoming, inclusive and creative space for all voices to share their views as your Co-EIC. Working as the Music Sub-Editor this year has given me the opportunity to collaborate with the Committee and our contributors, gain a thorough knowledge of the editorial process, and nurture the incredible talent of our writers through offering informative advice for article development. I am committed to maintaining an environment that promotes diversity and inclusivity, fostering a welcoming culture within the Society by championing writers of all abilities and experiences and inspiring content that offers readers an opportunity to discover new perspectives on a variety of topics. Upon election, I hope to continue to broaden our contributor pool by creating a weekly commission document with prompts for articles and reviews, maintained by the editorial team; such will offer a spark of creative inspiration for both current and budding writers, in the hope that the Society will continue to encourage all voices to showcase their work within the Journal. With my editorial knowledge, experience of contributing to the Journal’s various online divisions and print editions, and love of SAVAGE as a Society, I am confident in my ability to lead a wonderful editorial team with the greatest passion, preserving the Journal’s unique, original voice for another year.
Georgia Good
Hello! I’m Georgia, and I’m a second year English student. SAVAGE has been a huge part of my time at UCL so far: I’m currently Section Editor for Our Thoughts, I was a Sub-Editor last year, and I’ve written articles for three print editions and the website. As a result, I have a great understanding of both how SAVAGE works, and how special it is. In 2018-19, I spent eight months working in Communications at the University of Cambridge, writing, editing and managing a College website, social media and newsletters, while also working as a freelance editor for a non-profit. Together, this speaks to my skills as an editor: I have great attention to detail, and the abilities to organise, refine, and maintain integrity, to do justice to SAVAGE and its contributors.

As Co-Editor in Chief, I’d like to expand the journal’s reach, through collaborations with other student groups and societies, and increased impact on social media, to ensure SAVAGE is as relevant and innovative as possible. I’d also explore ways to foster a greater sense of community beyond the committee. Promoting organisations like the feminist FemThinkDo and refugee charity SolidariTee through Our Thoughts has opened my eyes to SAVAGE’s potential to create real, tangible change; offering SAVAGE as a greater platform for debate could also help start dialogues, and offer provocative, original and intersectional perspectives. As Co-Editor in Chief, I’d love to take these opportunities further. Thanks for reading!
