Your thoughts about 'editorial' skills required by copywriters...Views: 135

I believe in this era of super-specialization, editing and copywriting can be easily considered to be two branches of the same tree. A copy writer would essentially be a creative writer who can play with words, understand customer requirement and weave the content accordingly.

A person strong in copywriting can be discounted for not having sufficient copy editing skills. His specific job is to create a copy. It is the copy editor's job to proofread the same.

Moreover, a pursuasive copywriter with equally strong copy editing skills is rare to find. Choose your domain and be the master of it - that's what I would say.

On the flip side, a freelance copywriter needs to be equally adept in editing because more often that not he will have that job to do.
