Hyderabad: In an era when every information is available at our fingertips, creative and content writing has become much more than just a hobby.

Interestingly, you do not necessarily need any particular academic qualification to become a good writer. In fact, several well-known writers had no literary background. Anyone with a good command over language and a flair for writing can attract good companies. Specialised creative writers can work in various industries ranging from marketing and PR to advertising and web content managing.

There’s also opportunities for writing feature news for magazines, scripts for various TV or movie shows and even managing business portfolios of companies. Apart from working for a company, one can also freelance for various clients. While a career in content writing is highly competitive, there have been instances where writers have made a fortune out of blogging. If you know more than one language, then you can also become a translator. The demand for writers and translators is continuously growing with increased penetration of the internet.

While no certification is not required to enter this field, an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in literature (of a particular language) or mass communication is always a plus in content writing. A few institutions in India do offer short-term courses in creative writing. The least educational qualification needed for applying to a creative writing course is Higher Secondary or 10+2 in any discipline. The duration of these courses is mainly for one year. Most universities offer courses in creative writing as optional subjects in addition to bachelors and masters degrees. Apart from these, there are several creative writing courses available on online educational platforms like Udemy, Coursera and edX.
