Over the following 8 weeks you’ll learn all the ins and outs of the freelance writing game in whichever discipline you choose.
Both courses cover topics such as how to find the right publication to write for, how to write a query letter to an editor in order to get published and basic digital photography techniques so you have the right photos to go along with your story.
The real advantage to taking one of these courses with me is the personalized feedback you get from me on all of your assignments. It’s like having an editor take you through the entire process. Here’s what some of the students from my last food writing class said on their evaluation forms:
“Don was very prolific in his weekly instruction. He challenged my writing and gave valuable and extensive feedback each week. I’ve taken a variety of online classes in the last 5 years and Don is definitely the best instructor I’ve had.”
“I hoped to improve my food writing skills. I am currently looking for work and felt this course would be valuable in any position in the hospitality industry. In the short time the class ran, I learned more about the food writing industry than expected and improved my skills greatly.”
“The variety of topics was astonishing. I am so sorry this class is ending. I’ve enjoyed it immensely.”
If you’ve ever thought of doing some writing for publication, your own blog or just for personal pleasure, these courses can help get your started. Just click on either of the links above, and don’t hesitate to contact me or The Writing Centre for more information.
