Workshop for journalists starting out

"An Introduction to Freelance Journalism", run by freelance journalist and trainer Janet Murray, will cover everything there is to know about setting up as freelance journalist including finding, placing and selling stories, dealing with editors, and marketing.

The workshop is primarily aimed at those looking to establish a career in freelance journalism, but will also be relevant to PR professionals and staff journalists making the switch to freelance work. It could also provide a boost for freelance journalists looking to break new markets and/or increase their income.

Ms Murray, who is a regular contributor to national magazines and newspapers, such as The Guardian, says: "People have so many preconceived ideas about freelance journalism - that it's too competitive or that it's difficult to make a living, but that's just not true. Armed with an understanding of how the industry works and a few insider 'tricks of the trade' freelance journalism can be both financially and professionally rewarding. No 'boss' to answer to, no daily commute, the freedom to live and work anywhere in the's a fantastic way to earn a living!"

In addition to the workshop, all course participants can expect to receive three follow-up phone calls, free of charge.

She explains: "We've all been on courses and workshops which have inspired us. But even the best of intentions can easily be forgotten once we get back to the daily grind.

My follow up calls are intended to help delegates stay positive and focused on their goals."

Delegates who book before February 17th qualify for the early bird rate of £99 (standard rate £125), which includes a free copy of the e-book, Make A Living From Freelance Journalism (worth £19.99).

Ms Murray says: "If you sell just one feature as a result of this workshop - which I'm confident you can - you will more than cover your costs."
