Why don't you be the writer, and decide the words I say...

Latest article on how to be 'The Mane Attraction' has been featured in OVL Magazine. If you have a prom, wedding or big night out planned my advice may be of use. Click on the picture to enlarge and have a read.

I got an email the other day asking how I get my writing work. Simple version of events, I pestered emailed editors and asked if they'd like me to write for them. At the beginning I built up my portfolio doing some free pieces, this helped me gain a better writing style and be able to find the correct tone. It was also handy to gain some 'proof' to show other publications, proof of how super duper I am ;) I got some polite thanks, but no thanks back, but there were editors willing to take a chance on me.
I've recently enrolled on a News & Features Journalism course at the London School of Journalism. It's an intensive course which I will be doing whilst working full-time. I would love to go to university full-time but due to bills and shoes it's impossible. But I do have determination and drive which can help you achieve the impossible. In the next few weeks I'll be updating you on the course itself and what we are doing, I hope it'll help anyone out there who is wanting to start a career in journalism and features writing.

  1. That's a fantastic way of doing it, surprisingly, I've never thought if just emailing editors to see if they would take a chance on me! x
