What Our Students Say

Jeanna ThomsonAdvanced Freelance Journalism Course

The course was, at times, challenging – which was great as I had a lot to learn. I was able to get more real-life experience and that’s invaluable. Sarah was a thoroughly professional tutor. She went the extra mile to help and I felt lucky to have her as a tutor. She was very patient and her straight-up and consistent style of teaching was excellent. I was challenged and encouraged to be brave with my writing. The Writers College is both professional and friendly, and the courses I have done through them are relevant to magazine journalism today.
