PWA Founders Katie Yeakle & Rebecca Matter

In 2010, a group of well-connected A-List writers — including a number of AWAI experts — looked back on the key ingredients of their own copywriter success stories.

They realized the one thing that made a copywriting career sustainable was this: a supportive community where they could swap stories, share advice and tools, refer business, and support each other.

This particular group had been meeting face-to-face for years, thanks to a shared copywriter training course and a mentor who encouraged them.

There was no question the bonds they’d formed had helped them – individually and collectively – to reach the highest levels of writing success.

Brand-name clients … millions of pieces mailed … speaking engagements … six-figure incomes … published books … even modest celebrity in certain circles.

So – in the spirit of paying it forward – how could they take the power of their small community and make it accessible to other writers?

The answer was a copywriter success community like no other… The Professional Writers' Alliance.

The express purpose of the group?

PWA is here to help you achieve success as a direct response copywriter by showing you how to become a copywriter. And, we’ll connect you with the kind of warm, supportive, and resourceful community you need to grow your copywriting career from anywhere in the world.

A bold concept, yes. But one that’s already transformed the lives of hundreds of up-and-coming writers.

With PWA you can count on hearing from a variety of working, well-paid copywriters, with a professional at the helm.

Jen Adams
PWA Editorial Director

Jen credits the writer’s life she’s created for herself with allowing her to indulge her passion for travel – she’s worked as a copywriter in the US, Europe, and South America with an equally global group of clients – and still enjoys a career that grows more profitable every year.

As she’s built her career, Jen’s worked on every kind of content writing and copywriting project imaginable. She’s been an in-house writer, a freelancer, and an ad agency writer under contract. Her travels have also put her face-to-face with more tax, billing, client management, and project management issues than most writers see in a lifetime, giving her a unique perspective on the business side of the copywriter’s life.

As Editorial Director of PWA, Jen regularly highlights the many business-building options, tools, and collaborative support systems available to writers across the globe. She firmly believes YOU CAN create a successful writer’s life on your own terms, from anywhere at any age, by making smart use of the many resources available to you – starting with what you’ll find here, as a part of PWA!
