To learn linguistics, does it matter if I have an accent?

I want to study the English language and its science, but I know that the careers I am interested in will require me to possibly teach or aid people with difficulty speaking or those who want to improve their English, but I myself have an accent that I can't get rid of. #english #english-composition

How to find internships after college?

Although I'm not in college just yet, I am curious as to how I would find internships post-college. Is there a website I would have to go to or maybe just by getting to know people? I really am unsure. #college #english #internship #english-composition

What courses are needed for a career in literature?

I know this is kind of hard to answer, but I plan on going in the English/literature field for and after college, and I was wondering which classes would be most helpful in honing my writing skills. I heard that you don't actually need college for this career, but I felt like it wouldn't hurt...

How do writers begin their career?

I love to write, and am considering going into creative writing, but I don't know exactly how to start a career in that. Do you just write a story and hope it gets published? Or could you team up with a publishing company to start? #writer #english-composition

Should I focus on one genre if I want to become a writer?

I have tried at both fiction and poetry, and I have found out that I like writing fiction more than I like writing poetry. Should I focus on fiction or try and become better at poetry if I want to be a successful writer? #art #writing #creative #english-composition

I want to be an English major, but I'm wondering if there are jobs other than writing related things that English majors are good for? I want to know about availability and diversity in careers for people with this kind of education.
