Writers create written content for books, magazines, newspapers, advertisements, songs, scripts, blogs, or an other source of information.
A four-year bachelor's degree in English, French, journalism, communications, or a related field is probably necessary to obtain this position. A higher degree (master's or doctorate) in a related field, which may take an additional two-five years to earn, would be more valuable.
There will likely be strong competition for these positions. Opportunities may differ based on geographical location.
