Course Leader: Simon Whaley


Ever wanted to write a magazine article, but don’t know how to start? Or perhaps you’ve had a couple of pieces published and want to develop your skills further? How do you get six articles from one idea? Do you need photographs, and what rights will magazines ask for these days? This course will answer all those questions, and more!


If you have an idea for an article, or you’ve got an article you’d like to bring with you, then we’ll work on it over the weekend. (Simon is happy to look at delegates’ work prior to the weekend.)
