What are some alternative careers for agency (mid level) copywriters besides going in house? As the industry continues to slump I’m getting less optimistic about a new, non freelance job.

Maybe a production house? I’m finding more and more need full time copywriters.

CDs, do you like seeing long copy in a Jr or student book? Have a piece of work from school I never had an AD mock-up that was well written and reviewed. Want to better fill out the book while I’m freelancing, but since it’s something I’ll likely never do in my career, is it really worth putting in?

Is full-time freelance the only way big agencies hire outsourced talent? I've been approached by some decently big agencies who like my work, but will only bring me in if I commit to 40 hours/week. I have a handful of clients and can't exactly shut myself off from all opportunities because big agencies "need you available from 9am-6pm every day." Is this the only way to get in with well-known agencies? Do any allow for flat rate projects?

Anyone know success stories of copywriters who quit the ad business to pursue other writing ventures (ex: scriptwriting, writing a book)? Always internally debating if it’s worth trying.


I’m in a copywriter partnership and I’m not convinced my writing ability is good enough to strike out on my own. Is there any resource to have sample manifestos and headlines evaluated?
