Do you think that if you want to pursue a life dedicated to your art, you can’t have it all? That you and your family will be relegated to living in a garrett—or, the modern equivalent, in a seedy, run-down apartment complex in a dangerous part of town where roaches scamper around and laugh at you like they own the place? Think again, because you can have it all. You can earn enough money as a writer to provide a good life for your family while also getting to devote yourself to your meaningful, creative works on the side.
Have you wondered how you can be a writer while also providing a good life for yourself and your family? Or are you happy where you are, but simply wondering how you might make some extra money with your creative writing skill set? Consider giving copywriting a chance. Every printed or electronic method of communication uses language—from descriptions on hotel websites to the one-liners printed on billboards along the interstate—and copywriters are the ones writing it. Copywriters are responsible for writing marketing material intended to boost sales for a company. In this workshop, we’ll discuss what copywriting assignments are like for marketing and promotional material and complete enjoyable marketing writing exercises that demonstrate use and style across a variety of products and platforms.
Please bring a laptop or pen and pencil, and get ready to try your hand at an exciting—and lucrative—form of creative writing!
