What you will learn
This is a basic course designed for learners who would wish to pursue a journalism career on freelance basis without necessarily working full time for media companies. Freelance journalism opportunities exist in content writing for blogs and websites, editing, photography, scripting for radio and television. As a writer, the principles remain the same across the board save for style, you still need to develop a nose for news, be an avid reader and know how to conduct research for your stories and work with editors in pitching and presenting your story ideas, among others. This course intends to equip you with skills, if well implemented, should set you on the path of becoming a renowned writer, blogger and content producer for publications -- online and traditional newspapers as well as magazine. Feel free to consult your tutors who are practising journalists and lecturers in top public and private universities in Kenya.
