You need to demonstrate that you have the talent to write them which is usually demonstrated by having studied English Composition or perhaps Journalism. You need to go back to school and get at least a bachelor’s degree.

And if your school has a student newspaper, try to get on the staff and practice your writing there. Should be no problem, most schools are begging for people to write for their papers.

Your graduate degree as a guidance counsellor will surely povide you with good expository writing skills. In order to write well however, you need to be able to concentrate for more than ten minutes on the subject at hand.

The type of skill you’re looking at is called copywriting. You don’t technically need a degree of any sort to do it, but what you do need is to become a subject matter expert (SME) on what you’re writing about. Journalism might help sharpen the copywriting skill, but gaining subject matter expertise in government and education probably requires two rather different career courses.

Other fields to look into studying are public relations and marketing.
