Stated simply, you'll know how to write and sell a vast range of subject matter to the thousands of newspapers and magazines that buy freelance material.
The Course is also designed as a structured training program and assists many students within their existing professional career.
What the Course will cover:
Please request a Free Prospectus for a complete list of topics covered by the Course. In the interim we can advise we concentrate on the most common and therefore, for the freelancer, the most lucrative form of writing - the article.
The Course looks at particular areas of writing such as:
• General feature articles
All freelance journalists, regardless of their specialisation require certain key skills and knowledge and these areas form the backbone of our Course content. This includes how to structure your writing into saleable articles, how to pitch ideas to editors, how to establish and maintain client relationships, how to conduct interviews, negotiating fees, copyright and much more.
By the time you complete this Course, you will have an intimate knowledge of all aspects of freelance journalism. This goes far beyond simply putting words on paper. It also means developing your story ideas through to the important business side of marketing your professional skills and being paid for your efforts.
What's more, you'll be learning about the industry from the inside, benefiting from the accumulated knowledge of many of today's most successful freelance writers, journalists and editors. Remember, like yourself, every one of these media professionals was once a complete beginner. At the end of your Course, you will have acquired a level of skill where you can take on any freelance assignment you choose.
Details of the next Course starting date will be provided along with your Free Course Prospectus. As our tutors are working professionals Courses are scheduled depending on their workload and availability.
