    Copywriting

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by r3dbuddha, Jun 13, 2011.

    Hello,

    I've had a brush with copywriting, and to my amazement, I rather enjoyed the experience.

    Can anyone suggest or recommend further sources for self-study, or even courses I could attend (UK), which would allow me to delve further into the subject?

    Thanks again from your writing cook :)

    Yes, I have found a few, thanks, I was simply wondering if anyone has had any experience in one course or the other and could personally recommend one or two.

    I think however I found a good candidate with publishing house :)

    No, what I was looking for were personal recommendations, like I stated already.

    It doesn't matter to me if they'd have been posted here, or if someone replied with a PM.

    Please forget about it. It's not like life & death are depending on it, I was simply interested in the subject (books, courses, links, etc..) for it's own intellectual sake.

    Have a nice day :)

    Hi R3d,

    Just want to say, I totally understand what you're asking. A Google search is okay, but if someone, (i.e someone with copywriting experience) could give you advice or a recommendation then that would obviously be much better.

    Unfortunately, I'm not someone who can make such a recommendation (sorry!) however, I am looking into doing something similar myself - so how about, if you find anything, send me a PM and I'll do the same?

    Awesomo!

    You might find one of the links posted here to be useful:

    Also, I'd recommend you work on punctuation before worrying about copywriting.
