A Q&A site on Copywriting & applications
I have submitted a proposal for a community site on Area51 of StackExchange, concerning “Copywriting & applications”:
with this explanation:
Proposed Q&A site for copywriters that have questions concerning copy in general and specific applications and media.
There are already proposals that are vaguely related to this topic, e.g.
On Writing in general: http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/1623/writing
And technical writing: http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/8847/technical-writing
but copy is a quite specific skill, and knowledge necessary for its application in different media is considerable. Writing copy is a profession(*) and hence I believe it deserves a dedicated Q&A site.
There is also a proposal concerning copy, Blogging and Copywriting: but this too me too restrictive, in particular considering that the same copy often gets used in different kinds of publications.
So… support and contribute to this proposal!
Note (*): E.g. read
