what are the qualifications to become an author
All you have to do to be an author is write. Write as much as you can, as often as you can. If a few people enjoy it, publish it so others can read it too. All you can do is try. There's no proven way to become a successful author.
dont underestimate the importance of education. you might be a better writer when you know more about it. There are plenty of educations which lend themselves perfectly for that.
there are educations where you learn how to write, you dont NEED to have those. if people read your stories and like it, then, by many aspects, you are an author.
All you have to do to be a successful author is write a book that everyone wants to read.
This is infinitely harder than you think.
thanks you helped a lot. as long I have my high school diplomia I can be a writer.
but if I go to classes to be a better writer it wouldnt hurt
so you dont need to go to any college
write something others want to read ;)
