Here at Your Student Life we are always on the look-out for new Contributors to add to our ever expanding website of student knowledge and this month we have decided to host an Author Competition! If you would like to become an Author with Your Student Life and publish yourself to over 25,000 page viewers per month then simply email us at and include a small piece of sample writing and why you believe you would be a perfect Author! Once we have received all our entries we will read each and every one of them to decide who the lucky few will be.

All entries must be recived by the 15th of July and the results will be published on July the 20th. We will contact all the entrants before this date to inform them whether they have been successful.
