The realities of a copywriting career

There’s no doubt having a career in copywriting is exciting and interesting. Freelance writers work on a wide range of projects. You might find yourself writing about a luxury hotel one day, and aircraft parts or holistic therapy the next. Copywriters amass a wealth of knowledge because they have to research and learn about so many subjects.

A copywriting career isn’t all about glamour and expense account lunches though – if only!

You have to be prepared to work to tight deadlines, even if it means burning the midnight oil occasionally. But as a freelance copywriter, you are your own boss and once your deadlines have been met, what’s to stop you taking the rest of the day off?

As a freelance copywriter, you can work from home. It’s a career you can fit in around your family commitments.
