Getting Started In Journalism

If your head is buzzing with ideas that you think others would like to share, or if you like nothing better than getting stuck into a solid bit of research, then freelance writing could offer you a satisfying and flexible career.  Come and join one of my informative and fun workshops on How to Get Started in Freelance Journalism and you’ll find there is no mystique to selling articles for publication.


You only need take a look at the newspaper and magazine stands in your local newsagent to see the vast array and quantity of material that is needed on a regular basis for consumption by print media, most of which is contributed by freelancers. Add to that the huge market that the internet presents, and you can see that a well-focused, determined writer should have no problem in getting published.

£95 – to include a light lunch

You will need to bring, at the very least, a tablet or, preferably, a lap-top, as this is a hands-on course and you will be doing some research.

We are five minutes’ walk from the Northern Line in North London.  I look forward to meeting you.

If you think you’ve got what it takes but need a kick-start to your freelance career, get in touch.
