advertising copywriting


February through April brings the publication of a new three-week Writing class on, and it is also marks the start of a new opportunity for teens!

Sharon Watson has posted a three-week writing course on advertising copywriting skills, and we want to see one of her students in this class come to work for The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine!

This job is a part-time position that will be paid on a per-job basis. To apply for the job, your family must be members of Following completion of the course, your teen needs to:

• Send us Sharon’s writing assignments, completed, from the course. There is one assignment in each of the weeks—a radio script, warning script, and an advertising piece for a new product. (Illustration of product, in the final week assignment, is optional; not necessary for inclusion in the work you send to us.)

• Write a short essay—half to one page is sufficient; longer not needed!—explaining what you learned from Sharon’s course and why you’d like to write advertising pieces for The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. (Make this essay Times New Roman, 12 point, 1.5-line spacing.)

And that’s it! Send the three assignments and one short essay to TOS staff members Tami Fox and Bob Irvin at and Sharon Watson will help grade some of the top work as we look for the best candidate to do some writing work for The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine and!


So come join us for our newest class, Advertising Copywriting, and you might just be working for The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine in the future.
