Detailed class notes covering the content of each module are e-mailed to students. At the end of each module, students will be required to complete writing exercises. In total, the course includes twenty short writing assignments, all of which count towards the final result of the student. This includes a full-length article. Once the writing assignment has been completed, and e-mailed to the lecturer, an assessment and feedback will be sent to the student, and the module will be considered complete.
Students can also participate in ongoing online discussions by posting comments about the materials covered in the course or other issues pertaining to writing in the college blog. Students will receive an NZ Writers College Certificate upon successful completion of the course, provided they meet the following conditions:.

I also loved the addition of the grammar tips in the beginning. Sarah inspired me to write from the heart, shared tips to write more effectively, and revealed areas I could improve on. She was encouraging at every step, and that's what gave me more confidence in my writing.
It was a perfect industry-tailored course. All in all - it was FUN! My tutor was clear and incisive with her feedback. She gave excellent explanations for any changes she suggested leading to some good learning on my part and also provided encouragement and motivation. Importantly, she balanced a high level of professionalism in giving feedback, with an approachable manner. I always felt comfortable asking questions and always got clear and timely responses.
I learnt a great deal and feel my writing improved. The feedback my tutor gave was excellent. I was made far more aware of structures within writing. My aim was to generally improve my writing skills. I was not sure where to start, but I feel I made progress. I would recommend the Writers College to anyone wanting to have a go at writing, or up-skill themselves with a view to possible career changes in their future.
The course didn't feel like an extension of academia, but as though I'd plunged into a real-world writing experience, with the safety net of a tutor to guide me along the way. She was frank, honest and extremely complimentary at the same time. The courses at The Writers College are not about gaining a qualification but about gaining a practical and real-world writing experience.
Without The Writers College I don't think I would have the confidence to get out there and publish my writing. It was well laid out, including a manageable amount of learning per module. I was very happy with my tutor, her eye for accuracy was excellent and her comments were honest but helpful. This course has enabled me to take a step further in my aim of freelance writing — I now have the technical tools and confidence to achieve this. The course notes were informative and useful, and the pace fit perfectly with my life.
Paul was always very prompt with his replies. His feedback was always easy to understand and useful; I was dealing with someone who really knows their craft. The experience allowed me to sharpen my writing skills, with practical tips and techniques.
I now feel more motivated to write. My tutor Lisa was extremely supportive and helpful. She was very prompt with responses and a pleasure to work with.

On the basis of these questions, consider the news value of this lead from the lead story that appeared in the Times of Zambia on Wednesday, February 10, headlined "Zambians Assured: The truth will soon be established over the much talked about sale of arms to Angola's UNITA rebels, chief Government spokesman, Newstead Zimba has said. Bob stopped smoking that instant. Talking to people from Chinsali, you get the distinct impression that they have an axe to grind with the government of the day. He is often nervous about paying his bills, and worries about whether his children have enough food. It may sound simplistic, but that format will keep you focused on sticking to no more than three main points. The paragraphs that follow provide additional details.
