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.
