About American Writers & Artists Inc. (AWAI)

Helping people develop skills to acquire financial security, independence and freedom – that’s been American Writers & Artists Inc.’s (AWAI) mission since we opened our doors in 1997. And as the world’s leading publisher of direct-response copywriting, travel writing, photography and graphic design home-study programs, we’ve helped thousands of people do just that.

AWAI prides itself on publishing programs that not only equip our members with the tools necessary to succeed in their new careers … but with the critical skills and connections needed to land clients and start working professionally and earning money fast.

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!

Over the past 18 years, we’ve seen so many people improve their lives.

  • Not long ago, J.B. was $200,000 in debt with 7 kids, no cash in the bank and zero income. Now he makes six figures ($45,000 in one 2-month period alone!), is free of debt, free to spend quality time with his family, and is living the life of his dreams … all while writing from home using the secrets in AWAI’s copywriting program.
  • Using Michael Masterson’s “Ready, Fire, Aim” technique, C.M. responded to a job posting on DirectResponseJobs.com even though she had no business cards or marketing materials put together yet. The president of the company hired her the very next day to do her first project. Now she’s working as a full-time freelancer and is loving every minute of it.
  • Since taking AWAI’s program in 2003, G.H.’s income has skyrocketed by over 10 times, and in his words, he’s “become richer, better looking and 28 pounds thinner.” He attributes the practically miraculous transformation in his life directly to the income and lifestyle copywriting offers … he’s able to spend more time with his family, travel, eat well, go to the gym, even hire a personal trainer. Now, at age 50, he’s happier and healthier than perhaps the past 20 or more years of his life.

Plus there are hundreds of more stories just like these lining the walls of the AWAI office.

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

P.S. In 2007, as part of our 10th anniversary, we began honoring those AWAI members who, through their hard work and dedicated persistence, are “living their best life now.” To read their stories, go to our “Wall of Fame”. Browse around and be inspired!

Without fail, these “Wall of Fame” inductees all echo the same sentiment: If they can do it – so can you!

And remember … AWAI is always here, behind you, with all the resources you’ll ever need to be successful.
