Journalism and media writing course for staff and individuals

Make your writing sing

Whether you work in journalism, communications or content marketing, this course will improve your media and journalism writing skills.

My customised training for staff and individuals can cover how to write:

  • news stories
  • features
  • reviews
  • profiles
  • press releases.

It can also cover storytelling and interviewing techniques.

This is a hands-on and practical writing workshop filled with exercises so participants can immediately practise what they’ve learnt. Participants can also bring in their own writing that can be workshopped during the class.

The course can be tailored to suit different skill levels, from beginners to experienced writers, and can run from one to three days depending on your needs.
