To be a professional content writer, start by taking an online course or studying for a degree in English, Creative Writing, or Professional Writing, since this is a requirement for most employers. Once you’ve learned the foundation of content writing, practice writing articles for newspapers, magazines, or online platforms like wikiHow. After you’ve built a portfolio of content to show off, put your writing skills to use and create an engaging, professional CV to catch employers’ eyes. Don’t be afraid to take low-paying or freelance jobs when you start out, since the experience may lead to a better job down the line!
