Frequently asked questions about hiring a journalist

How does a journalist differ from a copywriter?

The media and journalism industry has dramatically changed in the past 10 years. Publications have moved online and there are many quality digital platforms that have also entered this space. Journalists too have had to adapt. Many have easily transferred their excellent research and writing skills to suit digital platforms. Others have upskilled in SEO and content marketing. There is a lot of crossover between the roles of journalist and copywriter. For us, we like to think of a copywriter as someone skilled at writing content that ultimately sells an idea, service and product. A journalist is more about story-telling and long-form, feature writing which can include lifestyle writing, interviews, travel pieces, investigative reporting or even corporate white-paper writing.
