Last week I popped by the Copywriters Unite meet up in Manchester. Hosted by the lovely Megan Wright, the evening saw a host of wordy creatives flock to Manchester bar Ply, for a good old beer and natter!
It's not often you hear about the educators behind advertising graduates, but this is an occasion to shout about a very special one.
We all love to tell a story, We all love to hear a story – and hey, we’re in the business of storytelling (who isn’t these days?). But since ‘the story’ has superseded ‘the big idea’ and ‘the journey’ how do we tell the difference between a good story and a bad story and more importantly how do we sell it?
Well fortunately for us, last night we trekked on down to the SheSays event ‘Finding Great Stories’ at Barker on Wall Street, New York. I guess you could say this is a story, to explain that story, about how to sell the best story.
Are you sitting comfortably?

So the return of Manchester’s mini ad school is upon us, and this time they’ve got two programmes. Their course for students and grads is taking applications as we speak, and it's on closing this Friday, so you better get cracking.
Using Facebook's most immersive format the canvas ad, you’ve got to submit your very own canvas folio. The chosen ones will get their own Facebook campaigns with up to £2,000 FB spend behind it allowing you to get your work right into the News Feeds of the Creative Directors you want to work for. You’ll also win a private lunch with a leading Chief Creative Officer.
To enter, you’ll first need to join the CANNT Get Noticed Facebook group (//fb.me/CANNTawards), where you’ll find more info about Canvas Folio, as well as a tutorial video and a How-To guide.
