New Career Opportunity from American Writers & Artists Institute – Learn to Write Speeches and Escape Your Cubicle Forever

Learn how to “write for the ear – not the eye” via the latest program in AWAI’s lineup: “Speech Writing Success! The Craft and Business of Speech Writing.”

Delray Beach, FL – August 25, 2011 – American Writers & Artists Institute (AWAI), announced an exciting new program, Speech Writing Success! The Craft and Business of Speech Writing.

“People who complete this program could earn an excellent income while writing speeches for a wide variety of clients ranging from government and industry leaders to the smallest of associations,” said Katie Yeakle, AWAI’s Executive Director. “We’re grateful that Colin Moorhouse, one of North America’s busiest speechwriters, has made the time to develop this program for our members. It’s a rare opportunity to work directly with one of the most in-demand speechwriters working today.”

The market for speechwriters is enormous. Many hundreds of speeches and presentations are given every week – in boardrooms, conference centers, seminar and meeting rooms, in hotels, office buildings, and libraries across the country. There are thousands of potential clients, from small not-for-profit agencies to the biggest multinational Fortune 500s … and everything in between. Almost every organization and business needs a speech at some point. That is how big and wide this opportunity is.

By the end of the program, participants will know:

  • The keys to doing effective speech research … and also knowing when enough is enough;
  • The single most important part of a speech – and how to tackle it effectively;
  • How to “write for the ear”; and
  • How to understand rhetorical devices and how they affect a speech’s level of engagement.

The program will be delivered via Moorhouse’s online training program, specifically created for AWAI members. It will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so participants can work at their own pace and learn not only how to write a great speech, but also how to find, land, and deal with clients.

There will be a series of four hour-long teleseminar trainings from Moorhouse, covering:

  • The 6 factors in crafting a winning speech;
  • A quick-start guide to writing their first speech;
  • 10 critical strategies for finding and landing clients, and
  • A live critique from Moorhouse himself on their speech.

AWAI member and social media copywriter Ann Jordan-Mills, who resides in Alberta, Canada, is excited about this program. “I ghost write eBooks and other manuscripts for clients, and this involves finding their ‘voices’ in the same way a speechwriter must,” she said when she heard about the program. “This course will teach me specific new skills and at the same time strengthen my expertise in ghost writing.”
