How do i get into a writing or singing position near me?

I have talent, I want to pursue it. I have a BS in english, mostly writing, and I want to know where that can take me. I also can act with my voice more than my expressions. #singing #voiceover #writing #music-composition

Mark’s Answer

I would suggest looking into podcasting, specifically audio drama. It has a lower bar to entry that other artforms. I recommend listening to Audio Dramas like Wooden Overcoats and The Truth to get a feel for the style. In the audio drama community there are often casting calls for voice actors, which you might try. For writing you can try to submit scripts or, produce your own new audio drama. For music, there is often music to accompany the audio drama so there are opportunities to contribute as well. These podcasts provide an excellent opportunity to start and gain experience, especially if you start your own.

John Preston’s Answer

Well, a B.S. tends to be more focused on building specific skills than a B.A., which has more focus on the humanities. You could go into a lot of different fields with a B.S. in English. Have you considered going into technical writing? Technical writers help author things like instruction manuals and warning labels. This also involves having strong written communication skills, which your degree would imply you have. So law firms, IT companies, non-profits, government organizations, etc. are looking for people like you to edit important documents and emails, as well as produce content for websites, advertisements, and handouts. One of my friends in the English program went to work for a security firm shortly after graduation.

If you can't find any entry-level positions, consider an internship in an industry that interests you and build your portfolio from there; you'll find work in no time!

As for singing, have you tried looking for any open-mics in your area? Maybe starting a YouTube/Soundcloud/Instagram channel? There's all sorts of creative outlets for someone with your talent nowadays. But I don't recommend trying to make it in the industry. The few that do usually lose themselves in the process. Just do what you love and find a way to express it to others. If you want to go into voice acting look for ways to build your portfolio (same as with the internship). Maybe lend your vocal talents to a podcast?

This is coming from an English major and singer, if that makes you feel any better. Best of luck!
