Ep. 22 How To Become a Journalist with Sarah Connell Sanders
Show Notes

I was recently answering questions on Instagram when someone asked me...
"How do I become that? How do you even get started in that job?"

It hit me that so many women out there want to do something different, but have no idea how to get started.  So I am now introducing...

The How To Become Series

Have a love for writing? Thinking about the possibilities of making a profit from doing it?
If so, this episode is for you.

Meet Sarah Connell Sanders. Sarah is a teacher and freelance writer from my home city, Worcester, Massachusetts. Her writing is dedicated to creating conversations around food, women, and education. Her work is so amazing (especially those pieces she did on me, duh) that she has been named “Worcester’s Best Columnist” in 2019 by Best of Worcester, and in 2020, she appeared on Worcester Business Journal’s “40 Under Forty” list. 

In this episode, Sarah is going to share her story on how she got her surprise start as a freelance writer, ways she suggests going about taking up journalism as your career, and what she wishes she knew right off the bat.

We also get to talking about:

  • The sport that was her life until it started to feel more like a job than a fun hobby
  • How striking up a deal with her local gym ended up getting her a columnist position with Worcester Magazine
  • The book deal that landed on her lap (and how that happened)
  • The one thing you need if you don't have a degree

and more!
