This freelance journalism course not only helped to dispel the notion that writing is only for “professionals” or “experts”, it provided me with the essential tools to start building my portfolio. I even managed to get my first piece published before I finished the course!
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”.
The Professional Freelance Journalism Course provided by the Morris Journalism Academy equipped me with many of the skills I use on a daily basis as a TV Presenter. It also supplied me with the knowledge of how to effectively apply them.
Now, I have a portfolio of work featured in several different publications – one of my humour pieces even made it to the Huffington Post’s front page. I’ve built great relationships with editors, which has led to a steady stream of commissions.
I have successfully been published twice in The Moroccan Times newspaper during the course of my studies. My goal is to continue to write and publish travel and life style articles. I would highly recommend the course to any budding journalist.
