Katy Lassetter of Chichester Copywriter is now writing a regular column for What the Dickens? magazine! What the Dickens? magazine, the brainchild of Brighton writer Victoria Bantock, started life as a free, online magazine for wordsmiths. This creative hub has since grown and, after a sponsorship appeal to get the magazine to print in October/November 2012, the first printed edition will go on sale this December.
It was during this appeal for funding that Katy of Chichester Copywriter pledged some money to this worthy cause (as you’ll know, Chichester Copywriter is all for supporting creative writing, particularly in the local area). Then, after perusing Chichester Copywriter’s website and spying that Katy has provided social media marketing consultation services to a number of authors and businesses, Editor Victoria asked Katy to consider taking over the Social Media Review column for the magazine.
Our West Sussex copywriter jumped at the chance to provide fellow writers and readers with tips on one of her favourite areas and here is a taste of what you’ll find on p17,What the Dickens? magazine, Issue 7, The Journey Edition, which is now available to buy and is due for delivery by Christmas…
