After much discussion, during the 2009/2010 academic year, Ashbourne finally launched its student newspaper, “The Ashbourner”, produced for the students by the students. The newspaper was designed by Esmaeil Khoshsepehr and produced by Aida Krnic and Sefer Mani. Assistant Director of Studies and English Literature, English Language and Drama tutor, James Wykes, also had a key involvement in the overall production. A number of Ashbourne student writers contributed towards this edition. They include; Ozioma Ukachukwu, Ariguun Batkhishig, Josh Kitto, Osasu Igodan, Katharine Lea-Robbins and Calum Witney.
