Indie-pendent (online course): An introduction to freelance political commentary

I produced an online course for student journalism network, The Indie-pendent.

The course covers:

  • Why write about politics?
  • Should you write for free?
  • Knowing what to write about – including sources to get political information  
  • Converting ideas/opinions into pitches – including news pegs, what to include in a pitch, and when and where to send your pitch
  • Turning a pitch into an article – including structuring your piece

In this course, you get access to all of the above and can also send me an article or pitch for one-to-one feedback, or ask any questions you might have about freelance political commentary.
