    Learn to write Direct Mail copy?

    Does anybody know of, or have any experience with American Writers &
    Artists?

    They purport to be experts at writing direct mail packages and for a reasonably hefty fee, will send you their course and provide a password into the 'work finding' portion of their site.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I think this is precise description of what AWAI is all about from ripoffreport.com.

    So is AWAI's "Six Figure Copywriting Course" worth it? If you don't mind paying $600 for a 500 page book and constantly being pitched their $2,000 3-day Copywriter Bootcamp or their $1,500 Copywriting Mentor, then yes, it's worth it. There is plenty of copywriting work out there. And the sales letters and website copy I've created using their techniques have worked really well for me.

    But if you really want to get into freelance copywriting, you can just pick up a bunch of books by top copywriters like Dan Kennedy, Bob Bly, Joe Sugarman, Maria Veloso, Steve Slaunwhite, and Peter Bowerman and save yourself a lot of money and time. And you'll learn the truth about freelance copywriting that AWAI conveniently seems to have left out of their course.

    Thanks.

    Interestingly enough, some of the authors you cited appear to be connected to this group.

    BTW, what's the truth about freelancing? I've been freelancing the ad agency side of the business as a copywriter, for more than a decade. It's not easy, but you can make some interesting money if you're good at it.

    The amount you earn as a freelance writer will depend on your skills, few will be able to provide guaranteed jobs.
