Magazine Editors

Exploring This Job

The best way to get a sense of magazine editing is to work on a high school newspaper or newsletter. You will probably start out as a staff writer, but with time and experience, you may be able to move into an editorial position with more responsibility and freedom to choose the topics to cover. An internship while in college also provides exposure to the magazine field and the different roles and tasks involved. Other ways to learn about the field include reading books about editing, taking a tour of a magazine's editorial offices, and asking your journalism teacher to arrange an information interview with a magazine editor.
