About Us

American Writers and Artists Inc. (AWAI) is the publisher of the world's best home-study programs for learning the art and science of direct-mail copywriting.

It’s a company that was formed a decade ago by master copywriters and marketers out of an industry-wide need for talented copywriters who can deliver copy that sells.

Only American Writers & Artists Inc. boasts a staff of more than two dozen accomplished professionals, all of whom have contributed to growing and perfecting AWAI’s extensive lineup of available programs.

Little did we know the impact AWAI would have on the industry – and on the lives of thousands of up-and-coming copywriters…many of whom are now writing for such big-name mailers as Nightingale Conant, Weiss Money Management, Agora Publishing, VitalMax Vitamins, and many, many others.

Our members are excited and thankful for the impact our flagship program – AWAI’s Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting – has had on their lives. Over the years the AWAI office has collected hundreds of unsolicited letters from happy members from around the world.

But it’s not just our members who have been impacted by AWAI’s Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting…

Industry insiders rave about the program, calling it “the most thorough and well-organized approach to the subject of copywriting” they’ve seen anywhere.

Marketers love the fact that members who finish the program are equipped with the kind of high-level skills that can elevate their copywriting ability to masterful levels. Says one marketer who uses AWAI copywriters on a regular basis: “Top copywriters are critical to my company’s success – and most of the freelance copywriters I use are from AWAI. I am much more comfortable hiring new writers if they have taken the AWAI course.”
