Copywriting as a Career
Believe it or not, your ability to make your friends laugh with clever Instagram captions could mean you’re cut out for a career in Copywriting. If you have a knack for storytelling and the ability to express ideas through words, you could spend your 9 to 5 helping brands convey their message — and get paid for it.
“I have always felt like I’m supposed to be doing something creative. I love writing. I love performing. And I love collaborating and being around people. Copywriting is the perfect mesh of all that.”Maddie Rosenberg

Start the Program Online
Miami Ad School Toronto has shifted to an online learning environment in response to Covid 19 and will continue to offer classes in our successful online format. This will provide accessibility to students who wish to continue social distancing or are unable to travel yet. Please read about our Online Learning Environment if you wish to learn more, and you can also take a Virtual School Tour.
For our non full time students, we will be offering a new selection of individual classes exclusively online.
“For any digital native that’s comfortable with online collaboration, I think it’s a no-brainer that online learning will naturally feel like a second home“
“I think the school has done a great job with online learning so far. The instructors have used the zoom platform to encourage discussion and keep lessons engaging.“
Year One: Study in Toronto
The first year of our Copywriting program will shape your writing ability and transform you into a hybrid storyteller. Students will develop and refine writing skills for print, digital, broadcast etc, concepting, and their presentation ability. All courses will be taught by experienced and current advertising professionals. This year is focused on building your unique portfolio, and preparing you for the workplace.
Currently all classes will be conducted virtually.
Year Two: Study & Intern Locally or Around the World
At the midpoint of the program, students will begin to gain agency experience while still continuing to take 2 Copywriting courses each quarter. You will be able to choose up to 4 agency placements locally or around the world. Meet new mentors, adapt to new markets, and work on real brands. Student’s will have the option to participate in remote/online placements.
“With the Agency Labs, the day I started working at Cossette felt like the day I started my career. We were getting real briefs, tons of work, and presenting to clients. It was a year’s worth of experience before I even graduated.”
“Doing is the best way to learn. Miami Ad School Toronto encouraged me to make prototypes, apps, books, art pieces and other things that I may not have otherwise tried. Doing these things under the supervision of such talented mentors has now given me the confidence to take unfamiliar processes and work through them.”
(Some) Grads Hired in 2020
Short & Sweet
Precise and to the point — you’ll learn that less is more and that not every piece of copy requires a thesaurus. From headlines to taglines, to banners and more, you’ll find out that writing for print is anything but dead.
How to Pitch
Banish stage fright through improvisational exercises, dialogue writing, and storytelling challenges that teach you to think on your feet — even in front of an audience.
Leverage the power of social media and learn how to use copy to build authentic relationships online.
Headline, web banners, outdoor boards, taglines, and social posts all require precision, and a certain turn of phrase. You’ll learn to be a writer of few words that carry a big message.
Master the craft of writing with clarity. Love words and embrace the relevance of long copy in the online world in ways that are interesting and entertaining.
Embrace the power of storytelling. Learn how to craft a compelling narrative in all your work that resonates with your audience.
Learn how branding affects the strategy behind the message and communication, product and brand development, storytelling, packaging, marketing, promotion, and signage.
