Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Has your yearbook staff been looking for a little coaching on their headlines, captions or body copy? Maybe you’re working on a great story, but you’re struggling with the lead. If the answer is yes, help is on the way!

As part of its upcoming National Yearbook Week celebration, Walsworth Yearbooks will be spending the entire day on Tuesday, Oct. 9, offering free writing advice to any yearbook staff looking for a little help.

Get Your Copy Right Day will be just one part of Walsworth’s week-long schedule of online events surrounding National Yearbook Week, from Oct. 4-11.

    This is my first year. Our school has traditionally relied on mostly pictures for our yearbook, but the students would like to begin including more text including stories and headlines. How can we make this move? We meet on October 9th from 12:25-1:10 and 2:30-3:10 CDT. Thanks!

    Would be awesome if someone could contact us via phone/online to tell the class about writing.
    Class is from 12:10 – 1:45. Anytime would be great ! Will look for your email.

  • Laurie

    Our class meets from 2:17 to 3:06 on Tuesday, Central time. It would be great to have someone contact us about writing good copy for yearbooks.

  • Paula

    We’d love someone to read our opening theme copy and give feedback.

    My kids need help coming up with headlines for copy.
