for someone who will never win the Pulitzer prize but would like to get into the media/journalism field, if you would call tabloid reporters "journalists".
- Do you need a B.A.in English with Communication/Journalism minor?
- Must live around the NYC or LA area?
- How many years of experience in the field shoul you have? Would internships and college papers count as experience?
- Would a mediocre writer be able to have a steady position?
Any tips and/or insights would be helpful.
Why would one even want to become a tabloid reporter? That's a pretty disgraceful use of writing, I think.
I've heard that the National Enquirer pays anyone who has a weird story from any location....can't remember exactly what they title it...but it is like a contest with a sum of money for the best submission.
I would imagine, if you've got the goods and are willing to do what it takes to get the goods, you could successfully audition for one of those rags. I know for sure that string photographers (paparazzi) are used.
You could also just go to their websites and check out the employment section. They are businesses like any other.
I can see how someone may think that, but somehow I'm guessing it wouldn't be a whole lot of fun and would probably be a lot of horrible pressure and general grief. Maybe I'm wrong....
I think having a bent for creative writing is all one needs to be a tabloid reporter Then again, you could always write for Fox News
Moral creativity perhaps, and good imagination for those exciting days paraphrasing and quoting crud from parliament
