The music festival season means there is greater interest in our popular freelance journalism course. We have had former students go on to work for top publishers like NME and Rhythm magazine, as well as succeeding in music blogging and other sectors.

Our freelance journalism course is for beginners, and can help devoted music fans develop areas that they are familiar with. And with music festival season kicking off immanently, there will be no shortage of material for your to write about.

We have had experienced journalists complete the course, and they’ve found it useful to brush up on their skills.

Thefreelance journalism course is a valuable way of developing freelance work. It goes into a lot of detail about identifying articles ideas, matching them to markets and selling them. And the tutor, Julian Brouwer, is a very experienced freelancer, with a huge range of contacts. We are also able to draw on our entertainments journalism course tutor Justine Holman, and several ex-students who are now successful music journalists, if students need additional help making contacts etc.

We also give our students access to our huge magazine database, which has the contact details of every music journalist / publication across the UK.

Our freelance journalism course will help you get started as a freelancer – but could also act as a refresher to brush up on your existing journalism skills at the same time.
