Copywriting? Isn't that old hat? Isn't it all about design and data now?
Well those are important, but without concrete, credible copywriting your brand may as well give up.
Hear all about it - after several years on the beach running Copy Cabana, copywriters Vikki Ross and Andy Maslen bring their copywriting carnival to the capital on Wednesday 19 September.
You may know Ross and Maslen from their #copywritersunite evenings held in pubs up and down the country where copyrwriters get together, put the world to rights and have a drink. Or two. Or sometimes more.
Originally in sunny Bournemouth on the English Riviera, the event has now transposed to the Euston where you will hear:
- Original She-Devil Fay Weldon who gave up a life in copywriting to become one of the most lauded novelists of her generation
- Bomb disposal officer and jungle warfare instructor Mark Budden MBE can kill you with his little finger but he'll instead tell you about: those that make things happen, those that wish things would happen and those that wonder what just happened.
