Position: Copywriter (Full-time)
We, Laudisi Enterprises, the parent company of Smokingpipes.com, Laudisi Distribution Group, Cornell & Diehl, and Low Country Pipe & Cigar, are looking for writing talent to join our team. Our copywriters work with direction and a ton of resources to produce product descriptions for Smokingpipes.com and other properties for Laudisi Enterprises, among bits of written content. We’re looking to hire someone who can write creative, compelling and well-researched descriptions about pipes, from historically significant pieces that date back to the late nineteenth century, to recent art works by the most prominent independent artisans in the business today. All our copywriters have opportunities to create longer form and more dynamic content as their skills as writers develop and as their understanding of briar pipes, pipe tobacco, and the history of pipe making deepens.
If you're an engaged, enthusiastic pipe smoker that pays attention to what’s going on in the world of pipes today (eg. you go to pipe shows, you follow pipe makers on Instagram) this could be the perfect opportunity for you so long as you’ve got the writing chops.
