Creative Writing for Media (Level 3) - Full-time

Media Creative Writing

Course outline

This course is perfect if you believe that creative writing is one of life’s great pleasures. The Media industry is always on the lookout for new ideas, whether it be for television, radio, games or film. Of course anyone can post their creative writing on a blog, but could you make money for it if it was a script? Could you produce excerpts in different formats so you can sell your material more easily? Do you know how to present and layout your ideas for industry movers and shakers? Could you write in someone else’s voice?

You’ll learn to develop your writing and apply it to different media formats. You will have the opportunity to build up a portfolio of work and produce excerpts using audio and video to advertise your skills. You will gain an understanding of genre in media writing and learn how to create stories that appeal to audiences. You will also learn how to present your work for professional submission and how to pitch and explain your work to stand the best chance of making money from your skills.

You will examine the work of successful writers from the industry and be encouraged to develop your own style.
