The Copy Ninja

What

A masterclass of copywriting and ideation skills

Already writing, but think you might be missing a trick? Want to explore the nuances of well-crafted copy? How to come up with an idea, how to sell it – then handle feedback?

This highly practical day takes you from the brief, to production.

Along the way, we’ll review, refine and boost an example of your own writing, as well as create a fresh one.

Learn the award-winning techniques to make you an even better copywriter.
