Damn Fine Words isn’t just an online writing course – it’s the first of its kind, and one of the best writing courses you’ll ever see.
Damn Fine Words was created for business owners of all types: small business owners, large business owners, entrepreneurs, freelancers, corporate staff, bloggers, in-house writers… people who need to create content for their business, and who want to learn better, more effective writing skills so that they generate tangible, bottom-line results from their words.
It took a full year to create the flagship Damn Fine Words writing course, because a great deal of thought into each lesson: what you should learn in terms of writing when you’re more of a business owner, what would be practically and immediately useful to your business, and what goals the course should help you achieve.
Damn Fine Words is in continual improvement and expansion, with new modules, lessons, and post-graduate courses in constant creation. Consider it a writing university in the making.
About James, Your Instructor
I’m James Chartrand, a highly successful professional writer who has been in the business for over a decade. I’m the creator and instructor of the Damn Fine Words writing course, where I’ve taught hundreds of students better writing skills over the years, as well as Daily Writing Habits, a 30-day program that offers a fresh, unique approach to building a writing habit.
I also own and operate Men with Pens, a website and copywriting company known for its popular blog. Over the years, I’ve worked with thousands of clients from around the globe, ranging from the self-employed to startups to large corporations.
I’ve written several books, my work has featured on major websites and A-list blogs, and I’ve been regularly interviewed in mainstream media. I’ve coached all sorts of business owners on all sorts of topics, and I’ve been teaching people about writing for many years.
I know writing. I know what works, what doesn’t, and I know how to help you become a better, more confident writer who can create the content your business needs.
In my everyday work, I see a lot of writing that needs help, like $20,000 websites filled with weak copy that hurts sales. I see bloggers struggling with articles that don’t attract any attention. I see good businesses owned by good people with “meh” newsletters that just fall flat.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Your writing can bring you better results.
If you want to get in my good favor, I’m partial to strong coffee and fine Shiraz – not at the same time, of course. I love the color blue, ice skating, and Nike sneakers in vivid colors. I have a significant other who cooks a mean steak, loves ice-skating as much as I do, and helps me raise my two wonderful daughters, without whom this amazing adventure would never have begun.

Ainslie’s career philosophy revolves around 3 keys to successful mastery of knowledge: interaction, support, and caring about helping people learn. In fact, this philosophy is the core of Damn Fine Words and is woven into every part of all its courses.
Ainslie loves Irish castles, traveling the world and drinking Coca Cola (leaded, not diet). She has a lovely husband willing to trade off parenting a spirited daughter for cooking delicious meals, she grins wickedly in the face of challenge, and – much to James’ dismay – hates red wine and fears ice-skating with a passion.
