How do I become an acquisitions editor?
I am currently in college and am changing my major from education to English because I want to be an acquisitions editor because I really like to read. Plus, I'm really good with English grammer, plot lines, characters and all that other stuff. I know that getting a couple of internships will be a smart step, but I don't really know what I need to do beyond that. Thanks for your help!

You're taking the right step in changing your major. Is it possible to get some experience by working on your school's paper? If you can work into an editing job there, you'll have a solid basis to begin with. Any journalism experience you can acquire will help.

You'll have to live in NYC and do an internship. Then you'll start as an assistant and work your way up to acquisitions editor. Good luck!
