Why should you choose this course?
This workshop will help you develop a complete process for creating effective copy – from interpreting a brief to writing the copy itself.
The course will explore preparation and starting points. What useful connections are there between your product and target reader? What impact do you want to make? What action do you want the reader to take? With these objectives in mind, we will examine different possible structures for different types of documents – online copy, press releases, brochure copy, brand ads and others.
We will then focus on producing clear, easy-to-read copy. We will test out different approaches for joining together ideas and images as building blocks, with the ultimate aim of persuading the reader. This will include ways of deploying tone, emotion and key phrases for the right results.
There will be practical exercises throughout the course, with an emphasis on sharing best practice.
