I am a copywriter and partner at Walsh & Associates, an advertising and graphic design firm in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. When I am not helping clients tell their company and product stories to customers and prospects, I am telling my own story at www.johnwalshcopy.com.
I studied writing and English and American literature at Brown University, including a semester in Dublin, Ireland where I fell under the spell of James Joyce and Seamus Deane and Smithwick’s. I was fortunate to land a copywriting job right out of college and have been writing every day ever since. “Writing is a craft, not an art,” William Zinsser points out in his great book, On Writing Well. “Very few sentences come out right the first time, or even the third time.” Amen.
I love getting sentences right, no matter how many rewrites it takes.
