So you want to be a motoring writer bookletDo you want to be a motoring journalist? If so, take a look at this free guide written by me and published by The Guild of Motoring Writers.

So you want to be a motoring writer (right) is a 16-page is the perfect introduction for anyone aiming to work in automotive media, whether they're a school leaver or someone who is considering a career change.

The booklet, produced with the assistance of Infiniti Europe, looks at potential routes into the industry, discusses education, training and work experience options, and details the wide variety of media and disciplines available.

And it's not just my view. It also includes expert advice from some leading names in automotive journalism, including Autocar editor in chief Steve Cropley, Guild chairman Charlotte Blight and CAR associate editor Tim Pollard.

So you want to be a motoring writer also includes information on the role of The Guild of Motoring Writers and an overview of the Guild's two annual prizes exclusively for new motoring writers: the Sir William Lyons and Phil Llewellin Awards.
