Q. How can someone become a sports writer or journalist?
I can only explain my own circumstances, but it’s far from the only route.
I did a degree in journalism and then, while studying for a masters, managed to get subbing shifts in a paper.
From there, I kind of hung around, hassled the editors to write more. Ultimately, you’ve got to put yourself forward!
