As a student with life, business, and professional experience, I was fortunate to find the Morris Journalism Academy via an Internet search because it was just what I was looking for. That is, a self paced, online, freelance journalism course rich in content and practical advice from the experts – those who had “been there and done that”.
Following a trip to Europe, I decided I wanted to turn my hobby of writing into something greater so that I could contribute pieces to magazines and newspapers. Already working a full-time job, I only wanted to pursue freelance journalism on a part-time basis. University didn’t feel like the right path for me or my goals, so I started researching the alternatives.
Growing up my dream was to work in fashion. Design, merchandising, media; the field was unimportant as long as fashion was my main focus. This was the plan for a fulfilling career and fantasy life. Graduating year 12 with less than desirable marks and no fashion design opportunity on the horizon, my dream was literally squashed.
I found the Professional Freelance Journalism Course provided by the Morris Journalism Academy to be an invaluable experience. As someone relatively new to freelance journalism, the program put the industry into context and gave me a broader perspective of the many options available to freelance writers.
