After having released a festive second issue over the winter, the Angler team is already gearing up for issue number three! This time, it is all about LGBTQ+ and inclusion. You’re invited to write a short story of around a 1000 words and send it to them, so that they can publish their favourite story in the upcoming issue! It would be nice if the theme is incorporated in some way, but they do accept short stories that do not have elements of LGBTQ+ and/or inclusion in them. Feeling inspired? Send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org before the 24th of March, and you might see yours in print!
By means of organising activities and writing you letters once every two weeks, Albion tries to spread some heart-warming love. Now, to make sure it’s not just your heart that’s warm, we finally have what we promised you: beautiful comfortable Albion hoodies! The hoodies will cost €25,- and are unisex. We can only order them if we have more than 13 applications, due to the processing costs. But if you convince your friends to buy one as well, the price might go down! You can order our merchandise via this form until the 1st of March, so make sure to check it out!
Een taalfamilie verschilt eigenlijk maar weinig van een familie zoals wij die kennen. Kinderen zetten zich soms af tegen hun ouders, veranderen hun taalgebruik en maken vaak in vergelijking met hun broertjes of zusjes enorm verschillende ontwikkelingen door. Maar ook al zijn de familieleden uit de Germaanse taalfamilie verschillende wegen ingeslagen, ze blijven natuurlijk wel altijd familie! En die familietrekjes herken je pas als je erop gaat letten.
Op 21 februari 2019 houden de studieverenigingen NNP, S!MP en Albion Association het Germaanse Talen Symposium. Vanuit de vakgebieden van Nederlands, Duits en Engels zullen drie sprekers het Germaans benaderen om zo een duidelijker beeld te geven van onze gemeenschappelijke deler die de talen onherroepelijk met elkaar verbindt.
Het programma ziet er als volgt uit:
> 17:15-17:45 – Prof. Dr. L.C.J. Barbiers: “Het Nederlands als Tussengermaans”
> 17:45-18:30 – Pizza in Koffiekamer Zuid (op aanmelding)
> 18:30-19:00 – Dr. J. Audring: “Er, she, het? Een Germaanse sandwich”
> 19:15-19:45 – Dr. M.H. Porck: “Oudengels is Nederlands en de Beowulf is van ons! Ideeën over Oudengels in negentiende-eeuws Nederland”
Meld je voor 14 februari aan voor het symposium via de link onderaan dit bericht.
Pizza kost €3,- voor leden en €4,- voor externen.
Als je niet mee eet is het evenement gratis, maar verzoeken we je alsnog om je even aan te melden.

“You study English? What job are you going to do then?” Everyone studying English Language and Culture has surely gotten this question at least once in their life. As a study association, we are here to hopefully arm you with some possible answers, because there are in fact many career possibilities with your English degree! As you may know, Albion organises a Career Day every year. However, this year, in line with the theme of this year’s ‘444-viering’ Humanities Matter, Albion wants to go a little bigger. That’s why we’re creating a Career Day Committee! Do you want to help make this day possible and polish up your resume? The committee will meet several times to brainstorm on possible speakers, workshops and advertising and you are hopefully present at the career event itself to help out. Are you interested? Send an e-mail to email@example.com or shoot a Whatsapp message to our chair Bart via 06-42328136
Christmas is just around the corner and you know what that means: the new semester is almost here. Make sure to order your books on time so you don’t have to spend the first days borrowing books and trying to figure out how copying machines work.
> how: go to https://www.studystore.nl/, select ‘studievereniging’ and find Albion. The rest speaks for itself! (Any changes in prescribed study materials are at your own risk)
Stressed about your resits? Don’t worry, we got you fam. Albion has now set up its own tutoring army for tutoring sessions! If you are not feeling confident about Linguistics, Philology or Literature, you can contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you need help with and when you would like to receive this help; then we will set you up with a tutor. Our tutoring sessions are mainly aimed at the resits, so hopefully none of you will need it. The hourly rate will be €10,- for our members and €15,- for non-members. That’s a steal for a good grade.
The previous Angler appeared only a few months ago, but our ambitious writers have been working on a new edition ever since. This time, it’s all about Celebrations! The brand new issue contains short stories, articles on pagan parties, contributions by Dr. Porck and Dr. Foster, and much more!
> Curious? Enclosed to this e-mail you’ll find the online version. Physical copies will be distributed at the Potluck Dinner, but you can also stop by Eyckhof 4 and find them on the coffee table on the first floor or shoot an e-mail to email@example.com to get your copy!
As of today, you can officially buy tickets for the one and only Talengala! This dance, with the theme ‘Fairytaal’, will take place on the 23rd of January.

Have you always wanted to become a writer? Do you think some newspapers could use a little of your expertise? Great news then, because the Angler is looking for new writers and editors! The Angler is the official magazine of the English Department at Leiden University, both printed and digital, written by students and for students. For next year, we are looking for people who want to join our lovely committee and assist in both writing and editing the magazine throughout the year, but also for people who just want to write a few articles every now and then (no obligations). If you’re interested, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and don’t forget to tell us if you would like to be a committee member or just a writer. We hope to welcome a large group of magazinists next year!
