Board of Writers

The Despatch Box was established by the 2016/17 PIR Society President, Daniel J. Atherton, and OJ/IT Officer, Kelli Jones, in 2016 to provide a platform for RHUL students to write about politics outside the confines of their course and develop skills in political journalism

The Board of Writers is the panel of students behind the journal, with each member contributing regularly to the online journal.

The Board is organised and led by the Online Journal & IT Officer, a member of the PIR Society Committee.
