The Wynd is a St Andrews based magazine founded in 2020. The goal of this publication is to provide student perspectives on news beyond the bounds of St Andrews. The Wynd also seeks to promote creativity to a great extent, accepting submissions of non-fiction, fiction, and photography, from our writers and readers alike.
Journalism which is representative of the interests and views of the whole team is central to the ethos of the paper. Beyond this, The Wynd seeks to provide deeply thought out articles. In pursuit of this, we are not afraid of publishing longer than conventional pieces, or of allowing our writers to research topics of interest to them which would not usually be covered in student publications.
Moreover, The Wynd, in its flexibility of focus between sections of the paper, is intent on not adhering to the typical politics-centred model of journalism. Naturally, political issues must be covered, but too often this takes precedence over cultural discussions or the like. Similarly, as a biannual publication, the Wynd is more focussed on overriding trends and movements in politics, and indeed culture, than it is in day-to-day happenings. This offers our writers far greater scope for exploring issues properly.
