Haris Halkic: Hi Stuart, thanks a lot for agreeing to share your best tips on copywriting and your background. Let’s start with how you got started in copywriting? Please, tell us more about your story.
Stuart Walton: I was an English teacher from 1987 onwards, the days of the dying mullet and I’d always wanted to be a writer from the age of four when I corrected Mrs Holiday’s spelling on my first day at school. That set me up nicely for a lifetime of being a grammar and spelling policeman. After graduating in English, I took a job in teaching until I escaped five years ago to become a writer and, more recently, expanded into web design at Get Pro Copy. Seemed a natural step for me.
