Specifically I have an English literature degree.
Depends on what you want to do.
Here's some suggestions:
- Stay in academia and pursue a PhD / become a professor
- Try to get a job at a publisher/editor
Not so obvious:
- Technical writer (you'd need to learn the technical part, obviously)
- Content marketer
Anything else? I'm not that into any of these :/
What exactly are you looking for...?
No idea to be honest - something that pays well where I get to write a lot.
Tons of work in content marketing / copy writing if you know where to look.
They're not exactly glorious jobs though, but high proficiency in English is well paid.
Where do you look to get started?
Find groups on Discord or Facebook where people are doing content marketing or "niche websites" or "niche blogs". Advertise yourself as a really good writer, and get some samples ready. Facebook groups are massive honestly, despite how weird of a vibe it is.
