How do you get a writing career started without having to go through college?

Report as

Amazon.com now gives the option to self publish with very little effort compared to what it took before. If I was starting out, I would go this route.

Few publishers will accept unsolicited manuscripts. You must first have an agent submit it. Unfortunately, agents don't tend to take on unpublished writers. You can't get an agent until you publish yet you can't get published without an agent. And so the cruel twist continues....

Of course there are always exceptions to the rule.

Good luck!

You can start by writing and sending your work to publishing houses. You can also send small articles to your local paper. Start a blog and put up some of your writings.
