Launch Your Writing Career as a Student
As a college student that loves to write, it can be really hard to turn that passion into an actual career path. Even if you decide to follow that path, there are dozens of writing careers and so many opportunities for someone who loves to play with words and sculpt ideas.
Do you go solo from your home office as a freelancer, try your luck chasing news stories as a journalist, or become the mouthpiece for a large corporation as PR/communications manager? If you are really brave and want the fame, maybe even try to make it as a published author or television writer.
For those who love the crunch of a keyboard or the flow of a pen as words come spilling out from within, we say follow your passion. To help you with next steps, we have put together a writing resource page designed to help college students launch their career in writing.
On this new page you’ll find some great advice (including words of wisdom from President Obama’s joke writer) and interesting challenges designed to give you insight into different career paths you can take in writing. You can even win a chance to speak with a book publisher!
