I wanna write taglines!

Dear Jancy,
I am fascinated by the power of a great tagline (maybe because there are so few). I am contemplating a freelance career focused exclusively on writing taglines. Is that a naive dream?
Also: Could you recommend a few names (preferably in Toronto) who might be willing to look at 5-10 samples and tell me if I have the talent to compress a bestseller into 3-7 words?
Thank you for taking the time to answer my 2 questions.

intro I wanna write taglines!We’re sorry to be the ones to break it to you that writing tag lines is not a job. It’s sometimes part of a copywriter’s job, a very small part of their time (the need for new tag lines comes up rarely). If you want to be a copywriter we advise that you check out advertising programs. Once you have a look at their curriculums (online) you’ll start to grasp how much more involved the job is, and what it will take to be employable in a highly competitive field.
