Media editors are always looking for fresh and engaging freelance feature articles, especially when it comes to travel articles, opinion pieces, personal columns, profiles and informative features. In this six week online course you will be introduced to the basics of feature writing and learn how to pitch and sell your work to relevant publications. You will learn how to find an eye-catching ‘angle’, how to write to the traditional formulas of feature articles, and how to write for a particular ‘house-style’. You will also receive individual feedback for some of the work you complete during the course. Sian Prior has been a journalist for three decades, writing for The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, The Saturday Paper, and The Big Issue.
