Grok is an Australian student-run media outlet, published by the Guild, who have been churning out quality content since its formation in 1969.
With a national reputation as a premium student magazine, its contributors deliver quality features, interviews and reviews through informative copy and slick design.
The magazine operates six editorial departments—Music, Lifestyle, Politics, Art and Film, Economics, and Science—to deliver a variety of content.
They publish regularly on their website, and produce a glossy print edition each semester—which you can pick up at Guild outlets across campus or view online.

“Grok has given me a brilliant platform to share my thoughts and opinions on something I’m deeply passionate about and I’m eternally grateful for that. Not only do I get to write about what I love, but I’m always finding new ways to improve my writing practice thanks to a constantly supportive editing team.”
— Daniel Patterson, Art and Film Writer
“Having the opportunity to see a design piece you’ve worked so hard on in the flesh is the best uni memory! The ability to have your work printed before even leaving uni is an experience that is invaluable, and it will really teach you so much about design and your own personal style.”
— Elyssia Burton, Designer
"Writing and editing for Grok has been eye-opening about the creative and managerial world that exists out there for people like myself, who started uni without knowing where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do. Now, almost two years after joining Grok, I can say that not only have I gained invaluable experience for any career path I choose, I have also definitely shaken my own expectations of how much joy you can get from being involved in student-led collaborative projects like this one.”
— Luisa Mitchell, Deputy-in-Chief Editor
