Writing for the Web and Mobile

“Grant was experienced, knowledgeable and a took genuine interest in each individual. He also had a knack of engaging the class as a whole to create a more intimate atmosphere, and was very encouraging! If you’re into any kind of writing, I recommend doing a course with the Australian Writers’ Centre – they cover everything!”

Great course and very knowledgeable instructor! I found the whole day to be very enjoyable and beneficial to help me with my current job. I liked that Grant asked us for examples from our workplace. He obviously keeps updated with the web and this was reflected in the course.

The workshop also gave me confidence that I’m in fact not so far off the mark with some of the skills I already have.”
