Nike’s “Just Do It” tagline was part of a 10-year campaign that increased the company’s share of the North American sport-shoe business by 35%. The takeaway? Good copy is a powerful thing.

This class will walk you through the basics of persuasive writing for advertising and marketing, applicable to any medium (print, digital, social, etc.). Learn whether copywriting should be transactional, transformational — or both. Do a quick writing exercise and get a chance to workshop your writing with the group.

Perfect for: authors and writers looking to self-promote or broaden skill sets, small business owners or entrepreneurs, and budding writers interested in copywriting as a way to generate income.
