Food Writers and Editors

Education and Training Requirements

High School

If you are interested in becoming a food writer or an editor, take English, general science, family and consumer science, and computer classes while in high school. If they are offered at your school, take elective classes in writing or editing, such as journalism and business communications. Editors and writers in any areas must be expert communicators, so you should excel in English in speech. You must learn to write well, since you will be correcting and even rewriting the work of others. While in high school, participating with the school's newspaper, yearbook, or any other publication will be of benefit to you.
