The Genuine Article: Okay, so you love magazines. Whether it’s a lazy weekend with the lifestyle supplements or a midweek appointment with a thick glossy tome, they all offer a mix of views, stories and information from a variety of writers. And more than once, you’ve probably found yourself thinking: “I could do that…”

And you’re right – you can do that. There are literally hundreds of titles out there – all vying for shelf space and covering everything from Gaga to lager; fishing to fashion; paparazzi to pepperoni. And each one of them is chockablock with articles written by people just like you.

If you’ve got a stack of story ideas, but don’t know how to get them from jotter pad to editor’s desk, then you’ve just hit the jackpot. Magazine and Newspaper Writing Stage 1 is one of the Australian Writers' Centre's most popular courses. Our students often end up getting their byline into some pretty major publications, sometimes even before they complete the course!

Your guide to getting published: If you’re serious about becoming an intrepid freelance writer, Magazine and Newspaper Writing Stage 1 will give you the tools and skills to craft magazine and newspaper articles that editors want to publish. We’ve distilled years of knowledge into a relevant and highly practical course – with scripts, templates and insider information from journalists/editors who are currently working in the industry. After completing this course, you’ll not only write with more confidence, you’ll get published faster!

This course will teach you about:
Ideas – where to get them and which ones work
The industry – understanding the magazine/news market
Styles – all the different types of feature articles
Researching, structuring and actually writing your feature
Interviewing skills – whether it’s a CEO or circus clown, rock star or rocket scientist, learn the questions you need to ask
People power – who to approach to get the best subjects for your stories
Editor expectations of freelance writers
Selling your story – a step-by-step guide to successfully pitching your article or idea to a magazine
and much more!

Feature writers come in all shapes, sizes, makes and models. This course is both perfect for first-time writers and anyone wishing to brush up on their skills. You might be looking to make some extra cash on the side, or even embark on a brand new full-time career. Or maybe you have absolutely no idea – all you know is you’d love to be paid to write these kinds of stories. Whatever your motivation, we’ll help you reach your goal.

Just remember – all those writers in all those magazines are just like you. With the right set of tools, you’ll be well on your way to seeing your name in print and making those ‘dream job’ dreams come true!
