Interested in copywriting

Hello everyone!

I am graduating this summer with a degree in English and Journalism, and have decided that I am interested in pursuing a career in copywriting. I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some advice on how to get started?

I am very willing to write for free in order to gain experience and develop a portfolio. Feel free to contact me if this is of interest to you.

Mark

Feel free to drop me a line nicola@allwords.co.uk, I'd be happy to give you some advice.

However, you have already taken the first step which is to try and get together a portfolio of work. Another good way to showcase your writing talent is through a blog.
