The pros and cons of taking the latest course on offer from Jennifer Goforth Gregory and the Freelance Writers Den.
Writing courses are valuable for a ton of reasons. They teach students how to think critically and critically evaluate all pieces of information before deciding which story or angle is most important. Furthermore, completing a course can be a good marketing tool. It also shows off your journalistic background and extra skills, so you stand out from the pack of others trying to fill your job. Finally, a good journalism school teaches you important legal skills – how to fill out legal paperwork, what it takes to report the news, what you can be paid for doing, and what is expected of you.
