If You'd like to make money as a high paid copywriter, You will want to take a look at all the great training programs that AWAI offers.

I have taken a lot of their courses and continue to do so! They are so detailed and comprehensive that you will be able to get out and start making money with the skills you need to succeed.

These are my favorite courses - the ones that I can recommend.

If you'd like to write for businesses, this course is for you. It explains all the projects you will work on as a B2B copywriter, what you should be charging, how to find the companies to hire you and more. This was a very informative and relevant course.

This course was the first one I took with AWAI and I learned so much about copywriting and marketing. It taught me how to write good copy and gave me the tools I needed to be able to sell myself as a copywriter and land some big clients. This is the type of information that is valuable no matter what type of writing you choose to do.

This is a monthly on-line magazine that I subscribe to and have for some time. I always enjoy reading it and there are always great articles in it as well as interviews with writers making six figures and living the life they love with the freedom to enjoy it. It's very motivational and you have the opportunity to write for them as well! 

I took this course when I began working for a firm that had a large web presence and I wanted to be sure I knew everything I should for demanding the fees I was charging them. Boy was I glad I ordered it. I was able to use the information I had learned and significantly increased my value to them and my income.

Every company has a website now and as a copywriter, you are bound to get some web writing jobs. This course will help you to add value to your service and make more money.

You can also visit the AWAI course catalog and see if there is a program you'd like to take. As a AWAI member and student, I always get a big return on my investment. With just one job I am able to make more than enough money to pay for the course several time over.

If you are really serious about making your dream of being a writer a reality, take the chance and choose just one course and make this year your year to begin living the writer's life!


The Well Fed Writer

I love this book! Peter Bowerman is the author and a FLCW (freelance commercial writer) himself so he knows what he's talking about! That said, I have to tell you, I had been writing for a long time but this book changed everything for me!

I loved writing marketing materials and had written a lot of them over the years for some of the jobs I had had, but when I first read peter's book, it was really the first time I had considered that I could actually write this stuff and make good money doing it!

I have read this book several times because every time I read it I learn something new or am ready to implement it in my business.

If I could only recommend one book to read on starting acommercial writing business, this would be it!

If you are interested in becoming a freelance copywriter, buy this book, you will be so glad you did! I promise!

I promise to use it only to send you News From Maria Pease .


"A cardinal rule of writing to follow is, never write your own back cover copy. Why? You’re too close to the work and can’t be objective. Enter Maria Pease.

I contracted her services to write the back cover copy for my upcoming novel, Crossing Lives. The only caveat was, my manuscript was nowhere near finished.  Despite this obstacle, Maria took on the project.

Most copywriters won’t touch this type of project unless you can furnish them with a copy of the entire work to be summarized.

In a span of three weeks, with just a few chapters and handful of character sketches to go by, she was able to craft a masterful blurb that captured the essence of the story I’m trying to tell.

Maria communicated with me on consistent basis and took a personal interest in my project. This was a pleasant surprise. Most “work for hire” is cold, aloof, and distant.

I highly recommend Maria Pease for all your copywriting needs."

“Thank you very much for the job well done! I hope we will have an opportunity to work together again in the future."

Timo Kestrel - Website Owner, UK

"I needed a website for my new practice and I had no time or skills to do it myself. Thank goodness I met Maria through a business associate.

She had my site up and running in no time. She even gave me some suggestions on how to make some affiliate income along with the service I provide.

If you need a writer who listens to what you want and gives great ideas on how to improve it, call Maria. You won't be disappointed."

Sandee West - Marriage & Family Therapist

"Maria has developed a business brochure and numerous newsletters and has been able to interpret the information I give her into professional writing pieces that communicate to my clients the value of my product.

Maria’s professional knowledge has played a large part in portraying my company in a professional light.

Maria Pease has been a pleasure to work with and I feel she would be an asset to any company in need of a commercial writer."

Lisa Beach -The Box Wrap Company

"I needed to update most of our marketing and sales materials including a brochure, a couple of sales letters, tips sheets and some in-house communications. Maria took care of it all and did a beautiful job on all of it. If you are looking for a capable, and enjoyable copywriter to work with, you can stop looking, Maria  is your girl."

Wayne Francis - Window and door installation services

"My advice is to hire Maria Pease to write for you. She is full of great ideas and will execute them beautifully. I have worked with her many times on several different types of projects from articles to websites and more and she never disappoints. She is truly a delight to work with. If you need a writer, look no further than Maria."

Ken Sellic - Business Owner

"I hired Maria Pease to help me promote my business and have been extremely pleased with her performance. She has developed all of my marketing materials to date including brochures, postcards, and promotional flyers.

Maria is a pleasure to work with, always energetic and enthusiastic about the task at hand. She continues to come up with fresh, new, innovative ideas to help move my business forward. She is dedicated to providing a superior product and has continued to exceed all of my expectations. It has been refreshing to me, as a small business owner, to be able to rely on an outside consultant to be professional, reliable, and self motivated."
