Freelance Journalism

Overview

One can only be taught to write as one can be taught to paint, or to play a musical instrument. We can give potential writers the basic techniques. We can suggest, counsel, encourage and discourage. We can tell you what is wrong with your work, and what is right with it.

Even experienced and successful writers can profit from it, the study it entails can only improve anyone's work, but we can only teach you what not to do, and stimulate you to write. We can give you the tips and techniques that will be short cuts towards success. Your course saves you time by doing some of the background work for you. 

This course teaches you the writing skills needed to get into print, from letters to the editor to full articles on travel or many other topics.
