What is the best night class in NYC for learning copywriting basics?

Would love to maybe put together a junior book but I’m not good enough at Adobe to do my own comps and I’ve heard that sometimes is the reality for these type of classes. Any recommendations?

You can definitely make comps for your own junior book (to start). It’ll be ugly and the concepts will be simple, but if you can show three good headlines with some kind of art...you’re golden.

Take a weekend and learn Photoshop. It’s a life skill. Get a fake .edu address going to get the student Creative Cloud discount.

Second AdHouse. Don’t think, just sign up for a winter class.

It won’t help you get comps for your book. You’re on your own there.

But it will help you make copy-led ideas that don’t rely on design.

Also, try Canva.

@CW1 and SC1: any advice which class would be best for first time copywriting or any to avoid?

Hi! I would love recommendations on how to be a better writer. I know in order to be a good writer, you have to read a lot of good writing. Ironically, this makes me much more insecure about my own writing and leaves me sounding very stiff and inauthentic. I'm wondering if there are more tangible resources than just reading. Specifically around finding confidence in your own voice, style and way of storytelling.


I’ve wanted to leave my agency for a while and it’s gotten even more toxic during the pandemic. How bad would it look on my resume if I just left to freelance? I’m beyond burnt out and have a good amount of savings.

When presenting brochures or anything with long-form copy to the client, do you prefer to read through the copy as part of the presentation, or just describe what’s going on with the copy and move on? In either case, the clients will always read the copy offline after the meeting.


Do you think it is worth putting a Facebook canvas in your portfolio? I just wrapped one for a client, and oh my God, it was so much more work than I thought it would be.
