Ms Claire Harrison, well-known copy writer and lecturer from the VEGA advertising school in Johannesburg, presented a workshop on copy writing on the Main Campus of the University of the Free State (UFS) in Bloemfontein.  She was invited by the Department of Communication and Information Studies.  The workshop forms part of a greater partnership between this department and the Department of Afrikaans and Dutch, German and French to improve skills in the course.  Other partners include the Department of Drama and Theatre Art, the graphic design school DCM and the national radio stations RSG and SAFM.  The workshop also serves as preparation for the advertisements the students must make for the Society of Physically Disabled and Kidz Care Trust.
