Book Club

WE'RE LAUNCING A BOOKCLUB

OUR BOOK OF THE MONTH:

The Hullfire is excited to announce our collaboration with the Feminist Society. We will be choosing a monthly book club choice voted for by you, then at the end of the month we will get together for a discussion.
The book club is open to anyone, so you don’t have to be a member of either society. If you have a love of reading, grab yourself a copy and join us.
More details of our first meet-up will be coming soon, but in the meantime you can read out first book option of the year: Women, Race and Class by Angela Davis.

About The Hullfire

Newly rebranded and established as a Society, we deliver the news to YOU

The Hullfire is the free, official student publication of Hull University Union. Newly established as a society, it has never been easier to get involved. Written and edited by the students, for the students, anyone can take part. Whether you’re passionate about Sports, Music, Current Affairs or you just want to write a one-off piece, we’re always welcoming new writers, digital editors, proofreaders more. We’re completely independent and aim to provide a balanced reflection of the diverse student experience with no political bias, so the possibilities to get involved are endless! Get in touch today.

Got a story? We’d love to hear from you…

Our governing documents state that we’re free to question and investigate the actions of the student union and the University of Hull, alongside being a platform for students to raise issues that concern the student body, and we work with an independent media lawyer to ensure our content is legal.

Our aim is to generate high-quality content across all genres of relevance to students, celebrating student life, the city we live and study in and global news. We aim to maintain a high level of professionalism over and above the standards expected of a student newspaper and be a force for good for students at the University of Hull. As we now operate as a society, your level of involvement is up to you. If being a writer to boost your CV is what you’re after, or if you are just looking to make some new friends and engage with the social side of a society, we welcome all.
