Ok, ya’ll put your hands down.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, most writer’s start in something less artistic. In fact, copywriting has been a great launching pad for writers and film folks. Where would F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ridley Scott or John Hughes be without those early copywriting jobs? Probably not in a place where we recognized their names today.
And not all copywriting positions are the same.
Just look at this amazing job posting by the folks at Vinted. Proof that it can be cool to write for something bigger than yourself.
