There’s more to your journey
Delve deeper into the practical aspects of feature journalism, including techniques on getting more from your interviews, stories and editors! More detail
Magazine and Newspaper Writing Stage 2 is ideal if you want to hone your feature writing skills and fully utilise the tools of the trade as a professional journalist.
It’s available to students who have already completed Magazine and Newspaper Writing Stage 1 at the Australian Writers’ Centre – either online or in the classroom. This is a pre-requisite.
Magazine and Newspaper Writing Stage 2 is a practical course that will ensure you understand the role of a journalist and will give you more confidence that you are following the right conventions and ethics. This course is essential if you want to build on what you have already learnt in the first course.
Want to know where all the cool kids hang out? The Graduates’ Club of course! Now, calm down – there’s no cigars, leather armchairs or loud ticking grandfather clocks here. But it IS exclusive invitation only (on completion of a course) and it’s free! Meet other writers online and share successes, seek help or just get something off your chest. Many students believe this ‘legacy learning’ is one of the most valuable things about our AWC community, and who are we to argue?
So if you want to receive feedback, support and a heads-up on opportunities … join the Club!

"I have even more confidence now. I did Magazine Writing Stage 2 straight after Magazine Writing Stage 1 and it really helped me stay focused and motivated - as I'm now freelancing as my career. I even had two features accepted during the course - I was feeling so confident I just went ahead and pitched. One of the editors got back to me to accept my pitch about 15 minutes after I sent the email. I couldn't have dreamed of that sort of result without completing the course!"
