ben has yet to fill out a bio.
I went back to school to get my masters in journalism. I learned a lot about the business, though I don't think it necessarily helped me get my job. I'd recommend emailing around websites you enjoy reading and are passionate about, and asking them if you can write for them, even for free. That's what i did when I first started out, eventually used social media to build exposure, and ultimately got noticed by the right people. Email around asking how you can contribute, whether it's as a writer for a website or an assistant to an editor at a newspaper
