Rebel Creative is a place where students can showcase their creative writing work. Our mission at Rebel states that we are the voice of the students and that we are a place for creative expression. Those defining principles are behind the inception of this space, where Rebel goes beyond just covering news, events and features to showcase more of what our members are passionate about. The following is a selection of pieces, new and old, that our members have written. Time to get inspired. If you have your own creative piece you want to be shared through rebel, let us know by emailing Rebel@essex.ac.uk
