Develop your passion for writing

Do you dream of writing a novel one day, or spending your days sitting in the sun writing poetry?  For many, putting pen to paper is a form of escapism, a chance to get creative, a way to share deep inner feelings or to simply record daily events through journaling.

But what if it was more than that? What if you could turn your passion for writing into a career and share your writing prowess with the world! If this idea excites you, take a look at the range of eCampus NZ short courses in writing and publishing.

From ‘Write Fiction Like A Pro’, to ‘Travel Writing’ and the ‘The Key to Effective Editing’, there’s a course to help you enter into a new phase of your writing development or give you the skill-set to apply for interesting jobs in communications, copy writing, editing, journalism and more.  Let’s take a closer look…

Travel Writing

Whether writing for a blog, a magazine or your own personal record of adventures, travel writing is a wonderful skill that lets you take the reader on a journey with you to exotic lands. In this course you will learn how to translate what is seen, heard, tasted, touched, smelled and felt into publishable articles and books.

Write Fiction like a Pro

What’s the single biggest difference between professional authors and beginners? Professionals know how to structure novels and stories for maximum dramatic effect. This course helps you develop the same story structuring skills that the professionals use. You will understand how your passion, theme, premise, and characters help you create the structure of your story, and discover how viewpoint, dialogue, pacing, and many other techniques are used to build scenes and move your story from beginning to end.

The Keys to Effective Editing

In our modern age, it’s easy to think that spell check is all the editing you need. However, as any good editor will tell you – grammar and spelling are just the tip of the iceberg. A good editor needs to know when to chop out copy and when more information is needed. They need to ask the tough questions and they need to provide recommendations to the writer on ways to improve the flow or how to tell the story better.

In this course you will learn the essential skills and resources you will need to become a successful and confident copy-editor. It provides the fundamentals of top-notch editing for both fiction and nonfiction. From the language of editing to grammar, punctuation, and syntax to the all-important relationships between editor, author, and publisher, every facet of editing will be explored in this copy-editor course.
