  1. Thank you for sharing a detailed, informative conversation. Katie, I appreciate the specificity of your questions.

    The number of vetted writers Copy Press has is impressive, but hearing that they need more vetted writers is even more impressive.

    Their onboarding process sounds a bit daunting, and we need to know if their requirement of a degree has no exceptions.

    If one wants to work for an agency, CopyPress sounds like the best of the best.
