The rumours are true:
The Damn Fine Words writing course is now open to new students.
You know that writing great content is crucial to your business success, especially in today’s online world.
Search engines need it to present your website to people searching for what you sell. Potential clients need it to learn about your business and get excited about what you offer. Readers, followers and fans need it to stay engaged and recommend you to everyone they know.
It’s safe to say that without good content, your business won’t go far.
In fact, it’s likely you’ll fail.
That isn’t news – all the pros tell you this. They tell you to write compelling website copy to pull in new customers. Write engaging blog posts that resonate with readers. Write newsletters to promote your products and services, write ebooks to convey your expertise, and write persuasive sales pages to create conversion and boost your income.
They tell you to write, write, write.
No one tells you how.
How do you write blog posts that engage readers to encourage comments, sales and sharing on social media?
How do you write a catchy headline that gets your work read, or a great call to action that hooks customers in?
How do you write website copy that’s more compelling and effective for your business?
For years, people came to me with these questions. I’m a successful professional writer who owns and operates the world-class website design and copywriting company Men with Pens, known for its Top Ten blog with a readership of over 40,000. My clients ranging from start-ups to large corporations, my work has featured on major websites and A-list blogs, and I’ve been regularly interviewed in mainstream media.
I know writing. I love getting words to work. I love making bad writing better. I love reworking weak copy until it sizzles.
I see a lot of writing that needs help, like $20,000 websites filled with weak copy that damages credibility and hurt sales. I see bloggers struggling with articles that don’t attract anyone’s attention, let alone a single comment. I see good businesses with “meh” newsletters that just fall flat.
This bothers me. I know it doesn’t have to be that way. Your content – your writing, your words – can bring you better results, and I’m ready to help you achieve that goal.

Not after the course – after each lesson.
You’ll also gain instant members-only access to a special forum, where you can interact with your fellow peers and me – let me tell you more about that.
Get Access to Personal Mentoring
This isn’t a course where you’re left to learn on your own. I’m right there with you –not metaphorically. Literally.
I don’t have assistants or staff. I don’t get other people to answer on my behalf – I work with students directly in the members-only area of the course, and I’m present almost every single to offer my mentorship and personal feedback on your work.
I’ll tell you when you’re doing well, where you could improve, and how to make those improvements. I’ll cheer for you, answer all your questions, provide you with support, share my thoughts, encourage you along, and give you specific advice on lessons and techniques.
I’ll be there for you, for the full 10 weeks. It’s like having your own personal writing coach – only better.
In past courses, the first few lessons brought one student 3 new clients. Another landed a $2,000 project. A third was featured on an A-list blog. One student saw a 200% return in just a few weeks. Several students wrote and published valuable business books.
That’s the power of better writing skills: More clients. More sales. More confidence. More opportunities. And of course, more income.
This course is an investment in you – now, and for years to come.
