What Job Can You Get With a Creative Writing Degree?


If your passion is creative writing, then you would take pleasure in a career in which you can spend all day doing just that. Creative writing is considered as an artistic quest, and you should know that a career in art is not easy, or simple, to come by; it requires dedication, hard work, spirit, willingness and the drive to take a huge financial risk. When you think people who make money through writing, journalists and novelists come instantly into mind; but do you know what other professions are available for people who wish to make creative writing a career? You can apply with a creative writing degree for jobs that demand technical, creative or other professional writing skills. Several students that major in inventive writing turn out to be copy editors, or technical writers while writing innovatively in their leisure time. There are few careers mentioned below that you can pursue while looking to start your career as a creative writer.

Technical Writer:

Technical writers are sometimes referred to as technical communicators; they are professional writers who write technological documents, or interpret technological terms into language that is more understood by the general community. Often technical writers write the duplicates found in user guides, online help sections, instructional manuals, as well as other specific documents. Sometimes technical writers copy-edit technological writing created by experts, such as engineers, architects and scientists.

Communications Assistant:

Several businesses and companies hire graduates with a degree in creative, or English, writing for working as a communication assistant. Typically, a communication assistant writes newsletters, as well as other outside correspondence, for sharing news and information regarding the corporation with business affiliates or with the public. A communication assistant might also be accountable for drafting interior communication memos to keep workers informed on other departments or the corporation as a whole.

Creative writing instructor:

Several colleges hire inventive writing degree holders to teach inventive writing courses. The programs that are trained at the preliminary level do not need a trainer to have accomplished a high degree such as a doctorate. Colleges also hire graduates with different degrees in lettering to work in campus writing centers. Writing centers offer editorial assistance to student's papers. You can also look for employment at a community center or public library, which often provides courses to the community in subjects such as poetry and creative writing.

Copy Editor:

Copy editors read and edit duplicates, so that it matches specific guidelines, as well as meets other perspective standards ahead of publication. Copy editors work for magazines, newspaper businesses, retailers, schools and several other associations in both the private and public domain. A number of copy editors work from home, obtaining projects and submitting complete work online or via mail.

A career as a creative writer can give you good earning if you do your work with great passion and dedication. There are several opportunities available and you need to choose one of them.
