Two career paths that I had in mind for my future are writing and editing. The two kind of go hand in hand, don't they? Basically writing and working with text is what I really like to do. My ideal topic of writing would be fiction or editing fictional works simply because I really love a good story. But in general I tend to enjoy working with text and I'm getting pretty good at it, since I'm a second year student at the University of Waterloo majoring in Rhetoric, Media and Communication Studies. What can i say? I like words and manipulating them to my bidding.

Context: Well, a broad overview my plan would be to get volunteer experience in editing and writing or become a 'freelance' editor, as the kids say. Then through volunteer experience I was hoping to secure an internship somewhere, since most places are looking for interns that already have editing experience. This position will give me more experience, which will perhaps lead to long term employment (hopefully at a publishing company) or at least look really good on a resume.

Is it possible to get into graphic designing without a bachelors degree?

The site I was using claimed that you needed a bachelors degree, but I've heard of people going into graphic design with an associates degree. #graphic-design #web-design...

What is the writing process for people who are actual authors?

Hello I am a 6th grader and I have always enjoyed writing and I am considering it for a career, but the thing that I always struggle with is making a rough draft or planning to the final copy. So I ask is the writing process the same in school or is it different when you actually write a book?...
