York copywriters - photo of York Minster

I’m lucky enough to know some great York copywriters. Every few months I suggest we get together for a chat. For an hour or so we talk over coffee – or occasionally cocktails. It’s an informal way to find out each other’s specialisms, make connections and get beyond the ‘jazz hands’ veneer of general networking.

Have problems with a late-paying client? Don’t know what to put in your Terms and Conditions? Need some advice on a new business direction? Come chat with your peer group.

If nothing else, being away from the keyboard is guaranteed to refresh your creative juices!

Competitors or your greatest allies?

I set up these York copywriters meet-ups as I kept meeting copywriters at networking. But I never got the chance to chat to them properly.

When I started, I assumed all copywriters are created equal. But it turns out we all have our niches – be that in sectors, or type of writing. For example, I specialise in SEO web content. If I get an enquiry for a project when I don’t have capacity, I’ll refer it on to a fellow York copywriter. And guess what? They’ve kindly done the same.
