^ currently in a mid-sized Midwest city working on global work for multiple Fortune 200 companies. On par with Chicago & Dallas salaries, yet all the perks of living in a city with great family benefits, shorter commute, diverse culture and lower cost of living. It’s not for everyone, but it’s the best kept secret for some.

All of the American cities are smaller than nyc. So if you’re moving to Chicago or la, you can create some awesome national work. I moved from nyc to Chicago and was able to add three dope pieces of work to my book within a year.

It depends on what agency and what city it is. It’s not like every agency in NY is pumping out incredible work. There’s plenty of shitty work out of NY. It’s not like anything outside NY is shit. W+K is in Portland. CPB is in Boulder. There’s tons of award winning national and global work being made in places like Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis, Atlanta or even Austin.
Heck, VML does great stuff out of Kansas City. Agency, client and type of work you do are more important than city .

Your book may be affected as a copywriter. Smaller city advertising work is usually limited to regional markets and/or boring and/or you’ll just have a lot less to show for your time there since new biz isn’t streaming in and/or you’ll likely only be on one project at a time.

What ACD1 and Freelance1 said

Yes, yet make sure the role you are going to carries weight. If you go from a Fortune 10 Accoutn in NY to a regional agency working on regional clients... well, then it could be a challenge.
