Creative Writer & Editor

Creative writing is one of the best-suited career options after English Honours, and so is an editor’s job. In the 3 years of the English Honours course, you go through the writings of world-famous writers, poets, and novelists. Most of the literary pieces are usually imbued with rhetorical words and sentences that help in framing your creative writing ability.


The more creativity you input in your writing, the more successful you will be as a writer. Suppose you are creative enough to weave words and sentences beautifully to transform even a simple sentence into an attractive one and produce a nice piece of poem/ short story/ prose/ novel, or anything solitary. In that case, this career option is going to be highly rewarding for you.

If you are more of a reader than a writer, an editor’s job is the best of career options after English Honours for you. It is because literature helps you in framing your interpretation of sentence structures. However, suppose you have the capability of proofreading and editing any piece of content. In that case, you can find jobs as an editor in any publishing company, digital content websites, academies, and so on.
