Novelists, creative writers, and poets are in limited demand, but for the talented few who do make it, it can be a very rewarding career. If you're interested in the media, you can consider working as a reporter, editor, researcher, publisher or literary agent. Public relations and advertising are also fields which are appreciative of formal writing degrees. Business opportunities exist for writers in finance, professional services such as real estate, law, unions, public administration and government, nonprofit, education, and industry, and wholesale and retail corporations. Writer salaries average over $54,000 in advertising and related services. The average income for editors is $41,000; it's over $33,000 in newspaper, periodical, book, and directory publishing.
