Value of this Module

It is not easy to get your work into print, yet many publishers will only consider a journalist or freelance writer who has already been published. This module gives you a unique opportunity to demonstrate your ability to write well, and to tailor your writing to the particular needs and requirements of a prospective employer.

You will also learn first-hand what it takes to get a publication from original inception to print. There is more involved than many writers realize, and a successful publication requires the cooperation and expertise of a team of individuals who work together to achieve a common goal. On graduation from this module, you will not only be a published writer, but you will have gained valuable experience as part of a publishing team. This is a marvelous opportunity for kick-starting a career in journalism, freelance writing, or in the publishing industry.
