We'll Show You How!
Thank you for your interest in the “Professional Freelance Journalism” Course. This Course is conducted totally on-line, via distance learning, over your choice of 12 or 24 weeks and leads to your Diploma in “Professional Freelance Journalism”.
The following Course outline will provide you with more comprehensive details.
At the outset, we would like to explain that the “Professional Freelance Journalism” Course is not simply a course in creative writing.
The British College of Journalism has developed this Course to ensure that you achieve professional writing skills. And, get paid for your efforts. Consider for a moment the immense satisfaction of being published. And the sheer fun and excitement of seeing your first income.
Your success in this Course will provide you with a guaranteed way to earn income from anywhere in the world or sitting at your own kitchen table ... for the rest of your life!
Freelance journalism offers one of the few remaining opportunities for individual freedom, self-expression and financial gain. It's also a lot of fun and can lead to varying degrees of fame and fortune.
About The Course
A successful writer does not have to be gifted. Every freelance journalist was once a complete beginner. Success in freelance journalism is very much a matter of knowing how to go about it.
The “Professional Freelance Journalism” Course has been designed to develop your individual writing skills. Your own professional goals and areas of interest are of primary importance to the College.
At the beginning of the Course you are assigned an individual tutor experienced in the areas of professional writing that most interest you. We also ensure your tutor has an in-depth knowledge of the “local” market for which you intend writing. You and your tutor work together to develop story ideas and writing approaches relating specifically to these areas.
These might include human interest, travel, entertainment, business and finance, fashion, sport, history, health and fitness, politics and world affairs, the environment, or any of the other hundreds of subjects of interest to readers. Naturally if you choose to pursue any number of writing subjects we are there to help.
What You Will Achieve
The “Professional Freelance Journalism” Course is designed to get you published as quickly as possible. From your first assignments, you are developing your own story ideas, editing them from first draft to finished copy, and submitting them to newspapers and magazines.
The Course is not only structured to teach you the techniques of freelance journalism. It's also intended to get you published and paid for your efforts. 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.
Further, you’ll know how to profit from all the other little-known but highly lucrative areas of freelance writing. For example, you’ll know how to develop and write material for the Internet together with newsletters, publicity material, company reports, in-house journals and much more.
There is an insatiable demand for freelance material. 99% of magazines and newspapers rely heavily, if not exclusively, on freelance contributions. When you know what the craft requires you will have a highly marketable skill which you can use for a full or part-time career or as a profitable sideline.
I would also like to point out the opportunity that exists, at the completion of your Course, for accreditation with our parent company, International News Syndicate. This is more fully explained later in this document.
Apart from a command of the English language, the qualifications are simple and straightforward:
1. An interest in writing
3. The willingness to learn
If you have these qualities, the British College of Journalism will provide you with the professional skills required.
