“I enjoyed doing the course and certainly gained wonderful knowledge and experience. It was a very positive and enriching experience and I learnt a lot.” Hettie Coetzee, Vryskutjoernalistieke Kursus, October 2014, Johannesburg.
“This course offers all the tools required to be a successful freelance writer in a short timeframe. It was a good introduction and explanation of Magazine Writing. My experience with my tutor was great; she was really honest, which I appreciated. I found it easier to learn from her feedback than the content of the modules on some occasions. The Writers’ College maintains a high level of professionalism and the course content gives an accurate overview of Magazine Journalism.” Natasha Barrett, Magazine Journalism Course, October 2014
