In our upcoming issue, I would love to see Lifestyle comprised of more vulnerable, self-reflective pieces.

What are you looking for in your section for Issue XVIII?

The ‘Arts’ section hosts an incredible array of avenues for exploration. I would love to hear what writers have to say regarding what Art means to them, perhaps investigate our contemporary Art forms. Whether it’s a recent exhibit, an experimental music group, an experience you can’t get out of your head- I see MUSE as an incredible instrument for both introspection and inspiration.

I love to hear how every Queen’s student chooses to spend their time when they’re not busy studying or going out with friends! Tell me all about the bands that you know too many specific details about, the shows you’ve binged 15 times, or anything you do in your downtime to keep yourself entertained!

Discovering Your Dad’s Music: The Pull of Past Generations (ISSUE XV)

What are you looking for in your section for Issue XVIII?

My favourite thing about MUSE’ings is that there is no limit to what can be pitched to me. Give me your political opinions and your 3AM poetry…I want it all! I’m want students to dig as deep as they can for creative pitches. I’m looking for articles that are personal and relatable, but still unique to the contributor.

Wow us with something that hasn’t been done before.
