Political Columnists and Writers
Most newspapers and magazines expect their political columnists
and writers to have a college education, so you will need to
graduate from high school to be accepted into colleges and
universities. As a high school student, you should take as many
writing and English classes as you can. Not only that, you should
also take classes in current events, political science, history,
and government. Also, learn as much about computers as you can.
Finally, taking a typing or keyboarding class is a good idea.
