Before you commit to publishing by pursuing a masters, make sure that you've done your due diligence on the field. What's the pay, what're the real prospects for jobs (don't trust the numbers the school gives you), what would you actually do
in that job, etc. Too many people naively pursue graduate work without really figuring out exactly how it will benefit them.
You don't really have anything particular pushing you towards publishing over other arbitrary fields, so make sure that's really the best field to pursue. I don't know anything about publishing, but you really ought to know a whole lot about the benefits of that degree before you sign up to spend $XXX and several years on it.
