About

Lennon Wall is the student magazine of Anglo-American University in Prague.

Published since October 2000, we’ve been reporting on the University’s and world’s current developments that matter. Values of the magazine – which is free speech and democracy – are the same as of the famous Prague’s Lennon Wall.

The magazine is a nonpartisan platform for aspiring reporters and future writers. We are independent from the University governing body’s influence, thus provide balanced coverage of high journalism standards.

LW print issue is around the campus once a semester, while the online publication brings stories to light weekly.
