Copywriting Essentials

“Bernadette was fantastic, and her industry insight and experience really had an impact on me. I can read about ‘how to be a copywriter’ anywhere, but she gave me a sense of the reality of it. It’s really well paced. Bernadette was very fun and knowledgeable. Homework is required which really helps you embed the learnings…and also why it’s so much better than a ‘free’ copywriting course/email funnels that are out there. “

Claire Quarrell

“I thought Bernadette was very good: She combined a focussed approach with anecdotal examples and comments on her experiences. She was confident and had a congenial manner but was, importantly, very attuned to getting across what we needed to know and learn.”

Michele Dobb

“I found my writing was a little more difficult for the last module until I sat down and realised that all I needed to do was use information from other modules. Specifically, outlining the features and benefits of the product I was writing about. Once I did that, the writing came easily. So overall I think I realised that, as most things in life, having a plan and breaking down what you’re writing about before writing, is essential. I highly recommended AWC online courses as they are easy to follow and well worth the cost.”

Melissa-Jane Nguyen

“Bernadette is very engaging. Her feedback was great.

A path to being a working writer. Thank you, Bernadette! You’re an incredible mentor.”
