Do you love to write? Perhaps you also have a Twitter account or blog? If so, you could easily turn your natural interest in writing into a lucrative sideline, and get published online and in print into the bargain. There are thousands of websites and magazines who need articles and content. By choosing a specialist subject, writing regularly and building your credibility you could make the transition to freelance journalism. This class will give you all the tools you need to get started on your freelance journalism journey. A second class held a month later will follow up and give you an opportunity to discuss your progress, as well as focussing on refining your writing style.

Bring one of the following:
gardening help and advice
home baking
house plants
Second hand novels (sci fi/booker nominated/just all round good reads you've enjoyed in the past)
wine (homemade welcome!)
