Look, Mum, I’m on the Internet! Online Writing and Editing with Estelle Tang
Sunday 3 March 2013
As more readers are going online for news, opinion and entertainment, writers need to adapt to the unique challenges and opportunities posed by the internet. In this course, you will learn how to pitch, write and edit pieces for online publication.
We’ll discuss writing networks, what editors expect, whether it’s ever worth writing for free, and what you might be paid for online writing. In this course, we’ll also explore the various types of publication opportunities – from personal blogs to professional writing for organisations – and how to read as a writer. Importantly in the crowded online space, learn how to promote yourself and your work. At the end of this workshop you will be equipped with the tools and the confidence to pitch your work and get it published online.
