Description

Do you dream of working as a copywriter in the Netherlands? If you want to expand your skillset or embark on a new career in copywriting, then this crash course is definitely for you! As a non-native English speaker, you can easily learn various tactics to improve your writing style and persuade your audience.

Nowadays in the Netherlands (and beyond), more and more individuals working in marketing and communication are required to have flawless written English skills. However, having a good written knowledge of the English language is simply not enough to be persuasive and to win over your audience.

My copywriting crash course will equip you with tangible English language skills, helping you become more aware of the potential problem areas in your writing. You’ll learn about copywriting tactics, how to avoid ‘Dunglish’ (if you’re a Dutch speaker), improve your use of prepositions (without translating them), and work on various grammar points.

We’ll also examine different types of online copy (i.e. websites, mailers, UX copy, mobile copy etc.) from a myriad of industries. Tangible examples serve as great sources of inspiration (but also caution!). So we’ll immerse ourselves in real-life cases and participants can also bring cases of their own to discuss.
