Advanced Freelance Writing Outline

This course develops and sharpens your writing skills largely through interaction with a professional, published writer, who becomes your tutor and mentor. You will read about different writing techniques, you will conduct research and interviews, and plan projects.
Freelance writing is a highly competitive field. Successful freelance writers not only have good writing skills, they have a 'nose' for a good story, a mastery of their chosen area of writing, the ability to write quickly and succinctly, good interpersonal skills, and a wide range of useful contacts.

While all these career-building skills are important, they obviously take time to develop. This course builds on skills and experience you might already have. It assumes that you have a solid understanding of writing. You may already have had something published. If you want to build on your past experience and skill though; this is exactly what this course is designed for.
