Bootcamp 2014 Speakers Revealed!

Here it is … the roster of copywriting experts and legends who will be sharing their insights and wisdom with us at this year's FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair.

We'll be kicking the copywriting event of the year off with a Keynote Address from Richard Armstrong, one of the nation's top freelance direct-response writers and winner of multiple Caples, Echo, and Maxi awards as well as AWAI's own Copywriter of the Year Award in 2012. He'll be sharing advice on how to make sure your copy "sings in the customer's key” and what that can do to boost your results.

But Richard isn't the only one who will be sharing secrets of how to dramatically increase the effectiveness of your writing. Direct-response legend Herschell Gordon Lewis will reveal his personal secrets for writing copy that works, while health-writing superstar Carline Anglade-Cole will showcase techniques to get great copy written faster.

You'll also hear from Dan Kennedy, John Carlton, Bob Bly, and Clayton Makepeace, all addressing different aspects of creating a successful writing career. These are the "highest paid,” "most respected,” "most ripped off,” and "best-known” writers of our era … and if you want to make sure you always have lucrative, interesting work, command top fees, get treated like a valued partner, and are truly happy with your career, you'll want to attend all of their presentations and soak up every word of what they have to share.

Pay close attention, too, in the session hosted by Boardroom Inc.'s Brian Kurtz. He'll be revealing what every copywriter should know about marketing to work with the biggest names in the industry. And if your ambitions extend beyond becoming an "A”-list copywriter to publishing, you'll want to be sure to take notes while Donna Baier Stein explains how to write and publish your first book.

There will also be exclusive Master Class sessions from Lori Haller, Joshua Boswell, Pam Foster, Will Newman, Jennifer Stevens, John Forde, Rebecca Matter, and myself.

From the breakfast sessions that kick off each day to the late night copy conversations that happen once the day's official sessions are over, Bootcamp promises to transform your outlook, your skill set, and your future.
