Political Columnists and Writers

Advancement Prospects

Political columnists and writers can advance in national exposure by having their work syndicated. They may also try to get a collection of their columns or articles published in book form. Moving from a small newspaper or magazine to a large national publication is another way to advance for columnists and writers. Newswriters who are employed by radio and television stations can advance by moving to the same positions at stations in larger—and more prestigious—markets. Others may choose to become print or broadcast reporters.
