Writing & Journalism

Good writing is all about choosing the right words to connect with your audience. Whether it's a novel, short story or an article, the crucial thing about a story is that other people want to read it because it's interesting, emotive and entertaining. Whether you're a beginner or you've been honing your skills for years, if you've got a way with words, other people should be able to hear what you have to say.

How can I become a writer?

From journalism and copywriting (both within a company setting or in a freelance capacity) to fiction and screenwriting, making a living as a writer is an attainable goal.

To reach a position where you’re paid to write, it’s helpful to have a diverse portfolio to showcase your ability. This could take the form of a personal blog that covers various topics in a range of structures.

Maybe you have a knack for getting to the juicy details of a news story, or perhaps there’s a screenplay in you that the world needs to know about. Either way, the more bows you can add to your quiver, the more employable you’ll look, which is where our online writing and journalism courses come in.

From creative writing to freelance journalism, we can help your writing leap off the page and onto the stage, screen, or printing press, whatever your goals and aspirations are.
