Welcome to the New Zealand Institute of Business Studies. We teach ten different specialised writing courses (three Journalism related and seven Fiction Writing), PLUS: proofreading & editing, digital photography and life coaching. Every course is home study with NO classes to attend and no travelling.
‘Old School’ Disciplines Applied To The New Tech Age!
With the internet and ‘being online’ now a major part of everyday life, our courses have become even more popular with people looking to expand their horizons (with many even taking on new careers completely!) With Blogs, Social Networking, Websites, eCommerce, Smartphones (and other mobile devices) practically everywhere you look; our courses now provide opportunities that previously didn’t even exist!
Journalism students may have previously been limited to working for the ‘local rag’ or maybe a national daily or weekend newspaper. Today, news agencies are crying out for stories, photos and articles from everywhere on the planet – and paying well for them too! The internet truly has made us a ‘global village’.
The digital age has also spawned a plethora of digital camera users, but very few of these users know how to turn their photos/videos into cash – we know how, and we can teach you!
Proofreading & Editing too has become a major required skill in this technological age with documents (both on and offline) being created in their millions, (if not billions) every year. Apart from the more conventional: novels, magazines and newspaper articles that need to be checked, now there are also: websites, blogs, online shopping carts, company reports, countless pieces of advertising material, pdf’s… the list is practically endless; and all require the well trained eye of a proofreader.
If you are the type of person that can spot a spelling misteak at a thousand paces and think that txt speak is NOT gr8, or 4 u (and is killing the English language)… then this course IS for you!
In the past, getting a book published was an expensive and complex issue. Today, budding fiction writers have the opportunity to self publish on places like Amazon, and for a fraction of the cost too. There is an age-old adage that is as true today as when it was first mooted. “Everyone has at least one good book in them” - The problem with this is that most people never get around to writing it because they never take the plunge and try! Could you produce a niche-carving bestseller in your spare time? With professional guidance you could!
