Course Overview
This course isn’t about which adjectives are more persuasive than others, or the exact number of words you should put on a billboard. This course is about idea-first copywriting; learning what good ideas are and how words bring them to life. It covers thinking critically about briefs, the difference between concept and craft, and why it’s often better (and harder) to write less, not more. We’ll also look at problem-solving methods copywriters use and habits that can help you develop as a creative copywriter.

•Develop a frame of reference for good ideas and the role writing plays in them
•Know how to approach a brief
•Be able to think critically about ideas and copywriting
