Interview With Copywriter Deanna Blanchard – How I Was Hired By Clayton Makepeace Without Any Experience

Deanna: I was working as an Accounting Manager at an event marketing agency when I received a letter from an organization called the American Writers & Artists, Inc. (AWAI). It said if I could write a letter like the one I was reading, I could make six figures as a copywriter.
