Maybe you’ve written a few rousing speeches for yourself or others.
Maybe you’re just attracted by the glitz and glamour of the profession. (Maybe you just fell over laughing.)
Whatever the reason, you want to start speechwriting professionally. How, though, do you begin?
Unlike aspiring doctors, bike mechanics and chefs, speechwriters don’t have a prescribed course of study and internship. There aren’t a lot of jobs out there labeled “speechwriter” and no one career path to follow.
