    I'm a BA Hons English Literature student at Gloucestershire University, and for a while now, I've gained an interest in going into written journalism, ideally for a website, and maybe going into spoken journalism from there.
    I write for a growing wrestling website in a team, hopefully expanding to do podcasts and spoken journalism. I have also done work shadowing for a newspaper company, so not that much in terms of professional experience.
    Any advice about what postgraduate courses would be ideal, or what qualifications/steps I should start taking over the summer?
