Maisie Skidmore Gives Advice to Young Writers

Maisie Skidmore, as editor of anothermag.com, certainly knows a thing or two about the journalism industry. Here's her advice for people wanting to follow in her footsteps:

"I would advise and aspiring writer simply to write, as much as you can, and for whoever you can. You can refine your technique through experience, but when you're just starting out I'd say it's even more crucial to pursue your interests, be they are film, fashion, art, theatre...These are the passion[s] that will give you the unique perspective and tone which will single you out and send editors your way for years to come

Also, be kind, and work hard. This industry is small, people are busy, and diligence goes a long way."
