Haris Halkic: Hi Grant, 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.
Grant Wood: Hi Haris, it’s a pleasure and a privilege for me to share my story with you.
Copywriting actually found me! I obtained a B.A. degree, in 2008, from the University of Cape Town with majors in English literature and social anthropology. I then went on to get a diploma in journalism at Varsity College in 2010 (also in Cape Town.)
I was lucky enough to land an internship at Sports Illustrated magazine during my studies. The watershed moment came when I saw my first piece of work published in the issue of April 2009.
