Have you read news, features and vox pop articles in newspapers and magazines - and wished that you could write like that - and get paid to do it?  This course will help you discover the basic skills needed to write news and the different writing style used for features from a professional Fleet Street journalist.

With over 26,000 magazines and 1,000 newspapers published in Britain every year, there’s never been a better time to begin writing news and features – from local to regional and national publications.
