Research the Industry
What does a career in publishing look like? There are magazine editors, book editors (and within that, acquisition editors, etc.), copyeditors, freelance writers, publicists, literary agents... the list goes on and on. If you love all this publishing stuff, think about publishing as a career. I'm looking at becoming an editor (of books) because I love criticizing other people (their work, I mean.) Try the different blogs we have here. Read some books.
Is publishing your future?
