Art of Copywriting
The Art of Copywriting is designed for experienced marketing copywriters who are looking to energize their writing by exploring and experimenting with different techniques and hands-on writing exercises that will help take them beyond their comfort zone. The key here is helping you develop memorable phrases and sentences that can then serve as fundamental building blocks for marketing pieces. Also crucial is the development of the ability to write in a wider range of voices to match up against diverse brands, platforms, and audiences. You should emerge from the training with fresh approaches to copywriting and more confidence in your ability to persuade through your writing.
