Copywriting is about how to strategically deliver words that gets people to take action. Whether you're looking to promote a service, create a fad, covet a legacy or educate the public, adopting a clear, concise compelling, and confident voice style will earn you a lot more engagement than dry long waffles and 4-syllable jargons. In today's world where content is rampant, engaging your audience is everything. If it's worth talking to anyone at all it's worth talking to them Straight.

Concepts will be illustrated with do's and donut's, class exercises, and copy samples drawn from instructor's own database and popular contemporary sites and brands.
