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”.
As I was studying it was like the words were falling off the pages and becoming a reality, pretty much everything the course said came true.
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!
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.
Before you know it, you start to think and talk like a journalist. You find yourself seeing stories and ideas everywhere and using terminology like ‘angles’, ‘hook’ and ‘word count’.
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.
Thanks to the Morris Academy of Journalism, I built up the confidence, and practical skills, I was lacking, to actually get published… and not just once, but several times!
I became interested in the Professional Freelance Journalism Course to become a better writer as I constantly write reports and papers as part of my current career as a food service design consultant.
Since finishing the course with Morris Journalism Academy (MJA) my motto has become ‘live life and write about it.'
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.
