Copy School participants will be given a real-world brief that will be presented and critiqued on the final morning of the course.

The workshop fee is $250 per student, with Copy School to donate the fully tax-deductible fee to Frontyard Youth Services, which is run by Melbourne City Mission.

Copy School convenor Ray Black said: “Melbourne Copy School has been a great success since its debut in 2015, due in no small part to the commitment and generosity of our tutors.

“Copy School is focused on how to creative great, effective advertising for brands and has attracted a range of students from junior writers at agencies to marketers themselves.”
