    Hi Jacob,

    Just finished my second year, still got another one to go then potentially a post-grad course. Off to London on Sunday for 2 weeks work experience at The Sunday Times which I'm really looking forward to. I've seen quite a bit of your stuff in The Guardian, how's life as a freelance treating you?

    Thanks for the advice. I already write for my school paper as well, and for the official matchday programme for my local team, League One club Gillingham FC, where I mainly do 150-word match reports, interviews with players (albeit in Q&A style), and the occasional opinion article.

    As for work experience, I haven't done much in the way of that. I read on the SJA website it would be best to get experience for a local paper (as I want to write for newspapers), would that be best? The work experience I have done is just one week helping out Martin Weller, Gillingham FC's Media Manager, where I wrote articles for the website and club programme and attended the club's press conferences. Also, next season I will be with Martin in the press box for every home game, so will be at all the post-match press conferences and all, does that count as any sort of experience?

    Anyway, thanks again for the advice, and sorry to keep asking questions, but if I may ask, what sort of qualifications would I need? A degree (in Journalism?) I take it, and then a post-graduate course in journalism? And does it have to be accredited by the NCTJ? or that other one for magazines, the P-something or other...

    Hey Jacob,

    I just read your latest article. I figured you must be a journalist, as your article was indeed of a higher quality than most others on this website (and through the use of a more extensive vocabulary it was clear you write for the broadsheets).

    Also, as I aspire to be a sports journalist in the future (I'm 16-years old), I just want to ask for some advice, if that's alright, on journalism, and how to make it in what of course is a very, very competitive industry.

    Anyway, I look forward to reading more of your articles, both in here and The Guardian,
