News | Former LS writer wins media award

Former LS writer Lucy Holden has won ‘student feature writer of the year’ at the prestigious Guardian Student Media Awards.

Holden was the editor of LS’s Lifestyle and Culture section from 2012-2013, and studied English Literature and Language at the University of Leeds before landing a job at The Times.

When asked about her award, Holden said: “It was amazing to be short listed for the GSMA alone and to go on to win it was unbelievable. It made all the hours in the Leeds Student office worthwhile.”

“I’d recommend anyone considering a career in journalism walks through the LS door tomorrow and signs up. I wouldn’t have got a job at The Times without it.”
