Helping people develop skills to acquire financial security, independence and freedom – that’s been American Writers & Artists Institute’s (AWAI) mission since we opened our doors in 1997. And since then, we’ve helped thousands of people discover how to become a highly successful copywriter and business owner so they can live their dreams, on their terms.

Achieve your goals with AWAI: our copywriting training programs, events and exclusive communities are all about helping you live the writer’s life!

Welcome From
AWAI Executive Director, Katie Yeakle

Dear Visitor,

Hi. My name is Katie Yeakle. As Executive Director of AWAI, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to our fold!

Since 1997, we’ve seen so many people improve their lives through our copywriting training programs, events and other offerings.

  • Mindy M., a former corporate employee who was just starting her family, had thought about writing but thought, “A career in copywriting seemed too good to be true; I didn’t think I could make money at it” She invested in AWAI’s The Accelerated Program for Seven-Figure Copywriting and immersed herself in learning about the field. Then the breakthrough occurred in her new career: in a span of two weeks, she landed three clients. Find out how she turned this into a clever career path.
  • Steve C., who always wanted to run his own business, had tried a few ventures but none were the right fit. When he came across AWAI, he couldn’t stop thinking about copywriting. But with a wife and six children at home, he couldn’t make an instant leap from a regular paycheck to a copywriting business. He got his big break after attending AWAI’s FastTrack to Success Copywriting Bootcamp and Job Fair, where he wrote a successful spec sales letter for The Healthy Back Institute. “When I went to Bootcamp, it was like a rocket. I literally took off in this business and I have not slowed down at all.”
  • Chris A. had been steadily studying AWAI’s The Accelerated Program for Seven-Figure Copywriting to transition from University Development Officer to full-time copywriter. But her career really took off when she answered AWAI’s call to submit copy for two industry leaders — Dan Kennedy and Clayton Makepeace. Thanks to her newfound copywriting skills, BOTH leaders took notice! Her work led to a testimonial from Dan, and she beat out four dozen other copywriters to win a contract worth $12,500 plus royalties (and mentoring with Clayton) with one of Clayton’s clients, Weiss Research Inc.

Plus there are hundreds of more copywriting success stories just like these lining the walls of the AWAI office… with more coming in all the time!

I’d like very much to help you do the same. If you want more freedom, more wealth, and a greater quality of life – I hope you’ll take a moment to browse our website and look over our entire line of programs to help you reinvent yourself.

I’m 100% positive that these programs can change your life, if you will let them. And, there’s nothing I’d rather see happen… nothing at all… than to see you succeed.

You’ve already taken a huge step toward achieving your personal-growth goals… so keep the momentum going by taking advantage of the many resources AWAI has to offer.

To Your Success,

Katie Yeakle,
Executive Director, AWAI
