We Stand with You — and Want to Help

We sent out a special issue of The Writer’s Life today in an attempt to add our individual and collective voices to the conversation that’s going on in our homes, within the AWAI offices, in our cities, and in our country about racism and social injustice.

AWAI is based on helping people use their voices and talents to create a better world for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Persuasive writing is a superpower that can change hearts and minds. It can educate … inspire … engage … and be a catalyst for change. And, also very important … it can raise much-needed funds to help groups and organizations get their important messages out.

Today, we are giving away for free to all who would like it, our program Copywriting for a Cause. (Click here to gain free access.)

While originally written to help writers make great money by helping companies support causes they believe in …

You can use the training to amplify your own voice, as well as the voices of any clients you serve.

Mindy McHorse, one of the experts behind the Copywriting for a Cause program, shares more about how you can use your writing to support the causes you want in this special issue of The Writer’s Life.

Our hearts go out to all who are suffering …

We stand with you today, and every day.

We embrace the fight for justice and equality.

And we will continue to show our support in the days, months, and years ahead.

  1. WOW! What an awesome thing for y’all @ AWAI to provide for us ... & what an unprecedented opportunity for us AWAI copywriters! Thank you to everyone @ AWAI for developing this training program, & for sharing it @ no cost to your members. I’ve already started impassioned writing about the issues causing so much grief & consternation in our world. How much more powerful will my messages of hope, unity, peace, & love for one another be as I employ this AWAI program. Thank you & God bless y’all!

  2. Thank you, AWAI, for this offer. I began working toward a degree in strategic communication in 2006 because I wanted to work with non-profits. My studies were disrupted by the health issues of two family member, and I haven't been able to complete the degree. I've had to put earning and increasing income ahead of my original goal for a few years, which explains my choice of AWAI course so far. With this free offer, though, I can get started on what I originally intended. Thank you, again.

  3. As much as I would like to share my knowledge and experience in the turmoil that is brewing around the globe at this time, I am leery that some may form different opinions about me and label me to be something that I am not. However, deep down in my heart, I wish to enlighten some about the origins of how slaves from African countries were brought here.

  4. I cried reading this. I have 2 black sons. (My oldest died unexpectedly in 2018.) My husband and I are white. We know more than we would care to about racism. We’ve been watchful in this time of unrest, because we have to be. The racists are angered now and looking for targets. Most of us who face racism in our lives do it alone. But this time, I see unity from thousands of people. To see AWAI take a stand touches me.

  5. Thank you, Rebecca. I already have the program and was thinking this was the way for me to make a difference when I saw the message. Have been working for a college, part time, and the grant just ended so I was looking to get back into the AWAI life and BOOM your message tells me I am on the right path. Thank you for offering this program free to those who may not be able to afford it. God Bless. Clara
