    I'm going to do a degree in English literature. I'd like to become a writer/journalist afterward. I have no idea if this is even possible. Would I need to have done a journalism degree to stand a change? Do I do a masters degree in English after my bachelors? How do you recommend I go about becoming an employable writer? Intern a lot during the summer at uni to gain experience/build up my CV, and then just apply for jobs once I'm done with uni? I'm just so confused about how I go about becoming a journalist with an English degree. Thanks in advance
