What is Breaking Copy?

With a bias toward things new and interesting, Breaking Copy covers marketing and advertising copywriting, as well as other word-related developments in current events and culture. Breaking Copy’s mission is to help all kinds of writers make sense of the evolving world of commercial language. Read the Breaking Copy welcome post.

Who are you and why are you doing this?

The blog is by Daryl Lang. I’m a full-time, in-house copywriter for a technology company in New York City. This blog has no affiliation with my company.

I’ve had writing jobs in several fields including an editor for a trade magazine, a reporter for a local newspaper, a research editor for a housewares company, and freelance gigs for some food and travel magazines. I previously edited a blog called History Eraser Button, which won some recognition for a post titled “Hallowed Ground,” which led to an appearance on BBC News.  I also appeared in photographer Gabriella Herman‘s Bloggers portrait series.

I’m writing this blog to become a better copywriter, to stay knowledgeable about Internet marketing, and for fun.
