UPDATE: Ann Titus


Ann is a freelance copywriter/ACD in Chicago, currently at Havas Worldwide on Citibank, after taking a year and a half off “to become a more insightful marketer to suburbanites and stay-at-home moms.” (Love that.)

UPDATE: Phil Calvit


Phil is a full-time freelance copywriter in Minneapolis. Since his last post on MC (03.10.14), he’s  added new work to his site and some new shops to his already stupid experience list. From Phil: “There’s no getting around it: I’ve been writing ads and ad-like things for a really long goddamn time. Since 1986, I’ve created stuff for pretty much every conceivable industry, in pretty much every conceivable medium—at, I would contend, a pretty consistently high level. And to think that this kind of experience, and this level of wordsmithing, are available on a freelance basis to one and all…the mind reels.”

Hey Freelancers


MC is gonna start 2015 with a new tag. We’re often asked, “Hey, I’m looking for a freelance copywriter in (city/area) who’s good at (kind of copywriting). Can you recommend someone?” MC isn’t in the business of recommending one freelancer over the other—but what we can do is add a “freelancer” tag to your post, so it’s easier for agencies and business to track you down. NOTE: The tag will be public, for all to see. If you’re down, hit up MC at the email below. Free as always, of course.

Sarah Dembowski


Sarah is a new copywriter after recently graduating from Chicago Portfolio School, and is now freelancing at DDB Chicago. This is what it’s like for the kids these days. Sarah’s got a campaign for Orville Redenbacher Ready-to-Eat Popcorn that’s all about how much easier it is than microwave popcorn. Wait, you mean we need something easier than microwave popcorn?! But. But. In her ad above, it’s equal to the difference between typewriters and computers. But I. I just. (Sigh)
