Copywriting Club.png

In-house or out? Our next Club examines the highs and lows of life writing for an institution. Creative challenges and opportunities, glass ceilings and breaking through to the other side, MBNA's Nick Pagan and Helen McCarthy will be their to field your questions and fuel debate.

What is life like for a copywriter, in-house?

Workhorse or wonder woman?

Creatively stifled or free spirit?

MBNA scribes Nick Pagan and Helen McCarthy take you in into the in-house world as they lead this Club through copywriting on the inside:

  • Nick Pagan always wanted to be a writer but life got in the way. He worked in financial services before setting up as freelance copywriter. He freelanced for three years before going back to financial services, this time as a copywriter in 2015.
  • Helen McCarthy has been a freelance copywriter for two years, even finessing Tinder profiles. Since February she’s been a part of the MBNA team

There will, as ever, be plenty of rich debate and lots for everyone to learn - in-house, freelance or agency side.

And yes, there will be pizza, beers and refreshments to keep everybody well fuelled.

See you there.
