Don't dream about your next holiday: Get paid to write
Have you made it through school or university without actually gaining a love for writing? Are you the person out of all your friends whose phone calls are ignored, unless your dear friends have a spare two hours in their day, to hear about all your cafe and shopping experiences? Then think about becoming a professional writer. The Australian Writers' Centre will teach you how to pitch, analyse, pack your bag get published as they conduct their professional courses with full notes and follow-up support.

Quality instructors present these online or weekend courses. My class were fortunate to have Sue White presenting. Sue is an accomplished travel writer and is prolific on her blog and social media. In the class, a wealth of individual experiences gathered, from parents who enjoyed sharing their experiences, through to employed travel marketing personnel.

"Can you add value to your readership that they couldn't already google?" asked Sue. All the industry jargon was given as we made our own personal journey from someone sharing travel stories with friends through to hopeful visions of seeing our work published with our name in the byline.

If you opt for the weekend course, you will surely feel relaxed at the Abbotsford Convent after a busy week. Treat yourself by arriving at a course an hour early by 9am and securing $6 all day parking across the road (all proceeds to go the Collingwood Children's Zoo precinct) and enjoying a nourishing breakfast at Lentil As Anything.

I can highly recommend this course as en educational weekend pursuit and a possible springboard to a fulfilling new career.

Sounds wonderful and very motivating. May have to save some pennies.

On a scale of 1-10, how useful did you find the course? And did you do a weekend course or the online course? Just trying to work out if it's worth the $300+ or whether I'll just be learning the same things you might read about in a travel writing book and/or blog?
