This is a piece from an entertainment website, but it’s appropriate for journalists – only about 50,000 news writers left in the U.S., with dismal incomes. That’s one reason (the main reason, really) I’m not in the field any more, though I am trying to get back into freelance writing. Writing straight news is hard to come by, as has been said many times, but corporate communications is still a viable career choice. Writing is writing, especially if you can get paid for it.
This is my first post on the new and improved website – I hope to be regularly adding content related to my writing for newspapers and magazines, as well as tabletop gaming rules of all kinds. Keep checking back!
