Course description

It’s all about marketing and how your copywriting can help fulfil your objectives.

A highly practical workshop addressing all the key aspects of persuasive written communication. Participants are asked to bring examples of their own written communication with them, and prepare a "brief" for a written piece that they can work on during the practical sessions (eg this could be for an eshot, 'standard' letter, print ad, web page…)

The workshop allows critique and feedback of the participants' written work, based on the examples and brief that they have brought to the session.

I learnt a lot today

Very informative and enjoyable. I learnt a lot today. It was refreshing to have an outsider review our material. Proved to be a wake up call to how I communicate with clients.
