Training alert - copywriting course

LONDON FREELANCE Branch in association with NUJ Professional Training is proud to present its latest training course - "Copywriting for journalists: looking at new ways of making money". As a copywriter who came to talk at a recent LFB meeting told us (see www.londonfreelance.org/fl/1710cw.html), copywriters seem to be paid better and earlier and treated better than most journos, so it's an avenue of work well worth looking into.
