    I have a passion for writing, reading, books and particularly non-fiction literature. However, I have not studied the subject in education as I developed my skill through my technology degree such as creating blogs and such.

    However, what else can I do with my writing skills apart from freelance writing/blogging?

    What about publishing? Teaching/tutoring?

    You can do all of those things. By publishing do you mean writing books or going into the publication sector and working in journalism, newspapers, magazines and websites?

    I've worked in online publishing since my A-level days without any writing qualifications (well, except GCSE English Lit and Lang).

    Yes. I am wondering if there are ways of getting into a publishing company of some sort.

    Publishing is a good idea and would suit you, but it is quite hard to get into. Getting some kind of work experience would be the key here. My family member studied English at university and did a lot of activities like running the student newspaper. Within three months of graduating, she managed to land a fixed contract job at an educational publishers, where she picked up a lot of skills. At the end, her contract was never extended so she moved back home. She spent seven months applying for publishing jobs before she found a new job.
