Feature Writing : Advanced
"Piers was very knowledgeable and gave a great mix of information, top tips, feedback and challenging exercises to test me throughout the day. I found that way of learning perfect - it helped me to learn a lot and to pose me a number of thoughts for when I do feature writing from now on. The course will certainly help me in my role in the future. I'm also very grateful for the flexibility of the course organisers ensuring that the course could be done via Zoom rather than having to travel to and from London for the day . Everybody at Media Training have been brilliant throughout, and I look forward to hopefully signing up for another one of your courses in the future :)"
