    You will need a college degree in journalism and 2-5 years of experience as a writer / reporter to become an editor. You would need the same to become the editor of a sports, hunting, hot rod, food and drink, yard care or "Regional" (San Francisco Live, Houston Doings . . .) magazine.

    So, take the college prep course and ask your guidance counselors which colleges in your price range have a strong journalism program.

    Your local newspaper may have a program for teens. Ask them. Your high school paper may let you do a fashion article.

    Best of luck!



    Learn to spell, too. The answer before me, "your aiming to high", meant "You're aiming too high . . ." but now he looks like a dufus. Your prose style sounds like you dot your i's with little hearts, but at least you didn't make any really bad grammatical mistakes.
