Ghana Institute of Journalism invites young talents
to study journalism and essay writing

GIJ courses are intended for those focused on the practical application of essay writing skills - editors, art critics, film critics, journalists, columnists, publishers, and reviewers.

Future essay writers will get acquainted with the theory and history of the genre, consider modern and traditional types of essays, study the features of creating critical essays, notes, fiction essays, and journalistic articles in modern media, as well as learn to define the style and format of any modern short essay and independently create unique essays in a concise form.

We will consider various aspects of writing an essay - plotting, the logic of judgments, linguistic expressiveness techniques, and much more - in theory, using other people's examples and in our own practice. If you want to get creative writing tools for essays, books, columns, articles, and reviews - courses for journalists and essay writers are waiting for you.

According to the only uncontested scheme, the essay is not a dull narrative, but one of the brightest and most interesting literary genres, which, despite its modest size, leaves a huge scope for experimentation and allows the author to develop their own original idea.

This occupation is suitable for anyone who has a desire or need to work in the genre of non-fiction and essay genres. The essay is understood by the author of the course quite broadly. Therefore, in lectures and assignments, a variety of genres will be considered - from essay to post on social networks, from a review of a film or book to an author's magazine column and an autobiographical sketch.

Once a week, you will complete a creative assignment and, if you choose a peer-reviewed course, you will receive a short review on it from masters professionally working in essay and non-fiction genres.
