What qualifications do I need to get into copywriting?

I’m a fully qualified journalist with 10 years of experience and a degree in English Literature. I’ve been living in the US for 2 years (for my husband’s job) and used it as a career break. We are due to return to the UK next summer and I want to move into copywriting/digital marketing. I’m aware I’ve been out of the game for a while and am thinking of taking an online course in marketing to give me the edge when it comes to job hunting, can anyone recommend one? Is there a particular accreditation that would be useful to me? I’m aware the jobs market may be a bit difficult at the moment, so any help would be appreciated.

Even though it's been a few years since your post, transitioning from journalism to copywriting/digital marketing can still be a smooth move. I was in a similar boat a while back, switching from print journalism to content creation. Taking an online marketing course sounds like a solid plan to brush up on skills and adapt to changes in the field.
