Today In Twitterverse: Strunk’s Is Power

The Girl Riot is a first-year copywriter, with a style guide. Her blog, view from the bottom has an interesting pitch.

YOU COULD BE GETTING YOUR ADVERTISING COMMENTARY FROM A MORE EXPERIENCED, HIGHER-PAID, AND PRETTIER AD EXEC. BUT THE DOWNBEAT AND BASS LINE ARE IN OUR HANDS– THE ADSTAR WANNABES CLIMBING THE CORPORATE LADDER. AS YET UNCORRUPTED, SOMEWHAT UNCOUTH, AND UTTERLY UNRESTRAINED, THIS IS THE VIEW FROM THE BOTTOM, LAID DOWN BY A FIRST-YEAR COPYWRITER. ADMIT IT. YOU’RE JEALOUS I JUST MIGHT BE PRETTIER. ACCORDING TO ADVERTISING TRADITION, THAT MAKES ME A MORE VIABLE SOURCE OF INFORMATION.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
