Ray Black founded Copy School over 20 years ago in order to encourage highly effective, creative writing – big advertising ideas that sell for the client.
He handed his baby to his old partner John Bevins, who vowed as the new Chair to maintain Black’s focus on creative work that works, and to stay true to Black’s “give back” credo for Copy School.
With NewsMediaWorks merging last year into Premium Content Alliance, the patronage championed by NewsMediaWork’s CEO Peter Miller could not continue.
Copy School’s NewsMediaWorks Manager Kylie Hannah and Bevins decided to go it alone, pro bono, and in recent weeks registered Copy School as a not-for-profit entity, with copyschool.org as its new website.
Chris Taylor of the Melbourne Copy School has also agreed to continue pro bono and, as Co-chair, he will run that school with Kylie Hannah.
