Good Morning Fishies! Any copywriters interested in putting their pens to work? I’ve got a couple campaigns in my back pocket that could use some retooling.


Feeling really frustrated @ work. I got my 1st job a few months ago, & while I’m super super grateful...they don’t have me doing anything of importance. I constantly have to ask the project manager for work, & when I am assigned something, it’s design work. Meanwhile, the other juniors here are working on conceptual briefs for big brands. I don’t have a team I’m assigned to nor do I have a partner (which I was told I would have one by the recruiter). CONT...


Feeling unenthusiastic about my work life recently. My agency doesn’t give me a lot to do, I often ask other folks if they need help. When I do finish a job, I’m always praised for it, and then I go back to to asking people.

Everyone at the agency seems to be busy all day. Not that I WANT to be super busy, but it makes me anxious to have to ask all the time. This is my first job, I haven’t met most any of my coworkers irl (we have no office). Work feels a bit like limbo.

What should I do?


When you get a break from making decks, what do you do to keep the creative juices flowing and avoid burnout?
