Congratulations to Karen Amidon

AWAI would like to congratulate Karen Amidon, the latest AWAI member to land a client from the 2009 Job Fair.

“I'm very excited about this! I sort of can't believe it. I'm still only 3/4 of the way through the Accelerated Program. I went to Bootcamp and have been working on the spec assignments. Through the whole last year I have been following the guidance given in the AWAI programs, especially Circle of Success, and it looks like it's paying off!”

– Karen Amidon

When we asked Karen’s new client, Andrew Palmer of Cabot Market Letter, what made Karen’s submission stand out his response was:

“She presented a fantastic headline and lead. Not one … but two! Her copy read like that of experienced copywriter. That’s why we’ve participated in the AWAI Spec challenge the past two years and we'll do it again next year.”
