Applications have opened for Copy School 2018 in Sydney, sponsored by NewsMediaWorks.

Copy School 2018 is designed to encourage the best quality copywriting across all channels and engages some of Australia’s leading advertising creative directors and copywriters, as well as news media executives, to pass on their knowledge and experience.

It will be held in Sydney from October 22 to 26, and is seeking 20 young copywriters to attend the workshop series.

Richards Rose senior copywriter Mark Sharman will be the Copy School convenor. Senior members from the industry taking part are Big Red Melbourne’s CCO Ted Horton, social commentator, writer and lecturer Jane Caro, writer David Morris, BMF Australia’s deputy executive creative director Jen Speirs, Disciple creative partner Tim Brown, Mr Mumbles’ creative partner Laurie Ingram, 303 MullenLowe senior copywriter Mike Burdick and The Sydney Morning Herald’s state political editor Alexandra Smith.

Copy School will provide participants with a real-world brief that will be presented and critiqued on the final morning of the course.

The workshop fee is $250 per student. Copy School will donate the fully tax deductible fee to The Oasis Centre, Salvation Army. The event will be held at Fairfax Media, 1 Darling Island, Pyrmont.

NewsMediaWorks CEO Peter Miller said: “Copy School continues to be a great success in Sydney and unearths some serious new creative talent. Copy School focuses on how to create great, effective advertising for brands from some of the best in the business, and it has attracted a range of students from junior writers at agencies to marketers themselves. I’d like to thank our Sydney guest tutors for sharing their knowledge and generous commitment to Copy School.”
