With over 130 horse magazines published throughout North America, many freelance writers and photographers are discovering what appears to be an untapped market. Learning some simple journalism tools and techniques will open doors to the equine publishing market and keep editors asking for more. This course covers writing styles, how to write, research, editing and the steps necessary to be published, the art and science of photography, and ethics in the publishing industry.
This course is entirely online, so travel to the University of Guelph is NOT required.
NOTE: This course is an elective course in the Certificate in Equine Business Management program. For details about this program, please see the program website.
