Exclusive 50% discount to Who Needs Copywriters?


Copywriting has never been more important.

The success of digital media still depends on persuasive writing. Traditional media such as print, DM, or radio, cry out for great writers.
But where do copywriters go for inspiration?


Who Needs Copywriters? is a conference for writers and marketers, organised by The UK Speechwriters' Guild and A Thousand Monkeys, with Bournemouth University Media School. We've invited some of the UK's top copywriters to share their insights into great copywriting:


  • What makes a successful tweet
  • What makes copy persuasive
  • How direct response gets results
  • Making social media work
  • How to break creative deadlock

You'll have to time to compare notes with an audience of your fellow writers and marketers over tea, biscuits and lunch.
