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

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

Copy School Melbourne will be held at News Corp’s offices at HWT Tower, 40 City Rd, Southbank.

NewsMediaWorks CEO Peter Miller said: “The commitment and years of experience of our guest tutors has helped make Melbourne Copy School a great success since its debut in 2015.

“The aim of Copy School is to focus on how to create great, effective advertising for brands from some of the best in the business, and it has attracted a range of students from junior writers at agencies to marketers themselves.”
