Your thoughts about 'editorial' skills required by copywriters...Views: 124
Oct 25, 2006 8:23 am Should copywriters take up a predominantly proofreading job?

This is a useful question to ask - how much of the job will require proofreading. A copywriter should be doing more than just that at work.

If a company is hiring a copywriter to do editing and proofreading, they would be using a computer to do the work of a typewriter.

Having said that, I do not agree with the view that copywriters should be excused for grammatical errors and language flaws just because they aren't writing long copy.

My suggestion: Find out the kind of projects the company mostly does - if it is mostly newsletters and advertorials and press releases and publishing - be prepared for the editing/proofreading. Perhaps npt a wise choice for a copywriter hoping to be creative director known for ideas some day, not an editor for his editing skills.
