Default Now that you mention it, a NEW Facebook group is coming.

So, what should I call this group?

Well, I don't know. But an answer to a recent question seems to help, me and the people who are asking.

The question: How long have you been a copywriter?

And I wrote back: "I'm NOT. Have never called myself that professionally, never marketed myself as one for hire. Writing copy, even direct response copy is just a part of my Artistry, as an English language artist."

So, he was confused, but it was as accurate, truthful as I can get.

It has to do with labels. Like POET. Well, I do write it, have posted several here over the years, have books full of poems, but I don't want to be labeled as a POET.

I write short stories. But I'm not a short story writer.
Nor am I an article writer.
Or a blogger.

And though I've written some plays, and scripts, as I've posted about here, I am neither a Playwright nor a Script Writer. Yea, yea, yea, a generalist, even an artist of words, would probably do better


with a focus on one area. But, although I do have a commercial side to my art, mostly HOW TO reports and general...

I find it interesting several successful copywriters were also screenwriters, and movie makers.

Getting one's ideas across, can sometimes take persuasion, influence, salesmanship...all part of my background.

Performing some stand up, or making little movies give life to the spoken artist within.

So, I think I'll set up a private Facebook group for those other artists who use the English language to express themselves.

Anyone here have an interest?

Like I said, may just be the two or three of us.

Gordon Jay Alexander ELA English Language Artist

I want to express myself, with WORDS, either spoken, written or visually.
