About the Course
This one week summer course introduces you to the craft of journalism.
It will provide you with the basic skills journalists are required to have when working in both news and features.
Designed as a practical (and fun) introduction to journalism, you will learn about the different career options open to you as well as the essential skills required to be a successful journalist, from researching and writing a story to how to make contacts and conduct effective interviews.
Team-working, planning, problem-solving and communication skills will be developed whilst you learn the tricks of the trade.
During this course you will:
- discover how to become a journalist and where to train
- learn how to research a story and maintain your readers interest
- develop skills in writing, editing and interviewing
- discover how a story progresses from an idea to the printed page.
What will you gain?
By the end of the course you will be able to identify suitable markets for your work, write in a journalistic style and notice an improvement in your English literacy, all of which will be useful tools for the future.
This course is ideal if you are considering further studies in journalism and want to explore the subject in details.
When you leave the course you will have examples of your written work to add to your portfolio.
