PWA Logos: Promoting Yourself as a PWA Member

Use your membership to gain instant credibility. Download the logos below and place them on your website, business cards, and promotional materials.

Bob Bly’s Copywriter Kit

This legacy kit from the legendary Bob Bly includes sample contracts … letters of agreement … telephone scripts … rate sheets … that you can use as a model when building your own freelance copywriting business. [Note: 2021 refresh underway - watch this space for updates!]

Direct Response Jobs “Premium” Resume

Along with getting access to DirectResponseJobs.com and searching the ads posted by marketers looking to hire new writers, your PWA membership now allows you to post your own page that promotes your writing services. It's just like having your own "mini website" directly on our job board, so marketers who want to search for the perfect writer can find and contact you directly.

On DirectResponseJobs.com, click on the button: Access Your DRJ Premium Resume.

Customize This: Copy Project Contract

Use this as a template for your own contracts with clients. Generously shared with us by Bob Bly, his "boiler plate" contract format is easy to use, well appointed and professional … but simple and plain enough to not sound like a bunch of legal mumbo-jumbo.

PWA Private LinkedIn Group

As a member of The Professional Writers’ Alliance, you're invited to participate in a members-only private group on LinkedIn

Inside our exclusive closed group, you'll be able to connect and converse with your fellow PWA members and mentors in a direct, real-time way.

This is our special, safe place to help each other grow and thrive. Don't miss out - join in today!
