    Hello Alison, I have a question. I am a journalism student right now, how can I get my foot in the door with getting my writing career started? I have learned about writing pitch letters but I really don't know how to get started. I have written news stories and features for class and had articles published in my high school paper but nothing since then. I have one year of college left. Can you offer advice?
