Walsworth hosting copywriting webinars, Twitter Q&A on Wednesday

Written by Aimee Parsons

As our National Yearbook Week party rolls on, Walsworth will be turning its attention to writing on Wednesday with a full day devoted to answering your copy questions.

We’ve once again declared Oct. 9 Get Your Copy Right Day, and will be holding two webinars and a Twitter Q&A to answer all your questions.

Idea File magazine Editor Elizabeth Braden will be your host for webinars at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Central. Braden’s presentation – Journalism as a Second Language – will cover several basic journalism writing rules that pertain to yearbook so you can speak journalism with the best of them.

There is no advance sign up, just attend the webinars by visiting this link for the 11 a.m. event, or this link for the 1 p.m. event.

Later, Yearbooks Blog Editor Evan Blackwell will be online at Walsworth’s Twitter account, @yearbookforever, from 2-4 p.m. Central to take your copywriting queries. Questions can be sent using #GetYourCopyRight.

Braden has been a writer and editor for Walsworth for more than 10 years, but prior to that her journalism career included working as a reporter and editor for UPI and Knight-Ridder Financial News. As she often says, she has covered everything from agriculture to zinc.

Blackwell has been a copywriter for Walsworth for the past nine years. Before Walsworth, he worked as a public relations specialist and spent five years as an award-winning newspaper sportswriter.
