Journalism Courses Advice

    Hello,
    I'm a writer with 15 years of experience in publishing, having written articles online, worked an editor for reputable (and sadly not so reputable) companies, launched my own magazines, and even been published in Hello and Cosmopolitan, and others.

    I am currently trying to get work as a freelance writer but am pitching without success. I do not have a formal journalism qualification and think I could do with some guidance and training.

    I would like to do a course that will give me the knowledge to work as a freelance writer, potentially gain employment, that is reputable, offers feedback and will open doors.

    In the long-term (starting Sept 2018) I am looking to do a Journalism MA. Would this be a year well spent?

    What would you say are the most reputable MA courses? I am very interested in Goldsmiths.

    In the short-term I am looking at freelance writing courses. The ones that stick out for me are a Freelance Writing course at City, and a similar one at LSJ, or a one-to-one email course with a freelance journalist Ellie Levenson.

    Has anyone done these courses and have they been commissioned or offered employment as a result?

    Or can someone suggest a course that gave them new opportunities?

    Thanks for taking the time to read this and any insight you can offer!
