Filthy Rich Writer is an online resource for new and aspiring copywriters, dedicated to providing tips, tools, and training to help people create the careers of their dreams. We are deeply and fundamentally opposed to gimmicks or get-rich-quick schemes; this is about real career training for real career success.
Our Founder, Nicki Krawczyk
Nicki Krawczyk has been a copywriter for more than 20 years: freelance, on-staff, for agencies, for in-house teams, for herself as a full-time freelancer making six figures, and as a Copy Director. She’s worked for and with clients including TripAdvisor, Marshalls, Hasbro, Keurig, adidas and, yes, even Harlequin Romance novels.
Since 2012, she’s helped more than 9,000 students take control of their careers, their incomes, and their lifestyles through Filthy Rich Writer and its signature course, the Comprehensive Copywriting Academy.
Meet the Filthy Rich Writer Team

As a student of the Comprehensive Copywriting Academy, you get access to our entire team of experts. We’ll provide the support, help, and resources you need to build a thriving copywriting career the way you want, whether that’s full-time, part-time, inside an ad agency, 100% work-from-home remote freelance, or a mixture of them all!
Kate Sitarz, Head Copy Coach & Marketing Manager
Since 2011, Kate has written copy for agencies, Fortune 500 companies, startups, and a range of businesses in between, including Microsoft, Zipcar, and Babson College.
She built her copywriting business alongside her 9-to-5 job before going full-time freelance in 2015. Since then, she’s worked from four different states and two countries, including a four-year stint in Germany, consistently hitting six figures year over year. Now, she’s expanded her role to lead marketing efforts for Filthy Rich Writer while still taking on select freelance copywriting clients.
Kaitlyn Spinney, Business Operations Manager
With over 15 years of freelancing experience, Kaitlyn is excited to call Nicki K Media home. “It’s incredible to help others launch careers that they love as much as I love mine,” she says.
When Kaitlyn is not busy using her analytical brain with a team of creatives and copywriters, you’ll find her paddleboarding, camping, golfing, hanging with her pups, or reading the latest fiction book to hit the library shelves.
Nick Olds, Marketing Assistant
Fresh from earning his Master’s degree, Nick is thrilled to be a part of the Filthy Rich Writer team. “It’s so rewarding to get to use my marketing knowledge to help other people find careers they love and deserve,” says Nick.
Most of Nick’s free time is spent on the golf course (some might call it an addiction), but he also loves taking his dogs for long walks, listening to his favorite podcasts, and going on weekend adventures with his family and friends.
Julie Hershman, Media Producer
Julie is a freelancer, producer, and project manager with nearly a decade of experience. She began her career working with freelance software engineers to help them negotiate contracts for the best possible rates, and to help them with project management when collaborating with clients.
Julie also have experience building social media strategy, producing podcasts, editing video, and more. When she’s not working, you’ll find her traveling the world, attending music festivals, and taking impossibly long walks with my dog.
Tracy Yothsackda, Business Assistant
In addition to being a business assistant for Nicki K Media, Tracy is a doula, wife, mom of four, and lover of all things Wisconsin. “Being part of the NKM team and watching our student’s journeys brings me so much joy,” Tracy says.
When she’s not working or taking care of small humans, Tracy loves spending time at the beach, concerts, camping, and trying new foods.
Meaghan Lynch, Designer
Meaghan is a freelance graphic designer, content creator, and webpage designer. “As someone who changed careers to find a more fulfilling path that fosters my creativity, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help others find a rewarding career that they love,” says Meaghan. “I am energized each day by my projects and could not be happier to be part of the Filthy Rich Writer team.”
When she’s not being a Jill of all trades, you can find her outdoors hiking or at the beach, finding my next adrenaline rush, or binging my favorite shows.
Stuart Tarn, Coaching Program Lead
Until Stuart saw Nicki’s ad for Filthy Rich Writer, he was a frustrated, furloughed manager for an international airline, worrying he would end up as another 2020 redundancy statistic, desperately searching for a new job to pay the mortgage.
In 2022, Stuart moved from copywriting part time alongside his 9-to-5 job to freelancing full time. And though he is based in the UK, he has a roster of clients around the world. Stuart leads the Comprehensive Copywriting Academy student coaching program, ensuring students get the best possible support throughout their copywriting journey.

A Note From Nicki
When I started out, I bought a lot of books about copywriting. Or, at least, they were supposed to teach copywriting. Those books told me how to set up an invoice. How to deduct mileage. How to buy a fax machine. But they didn’t tell me how to write copy. As the French say, “Quelle waste of cash.” (It’s why I jumped at the chance to write an actual book about copywriting, Copywriting Strategies: A No-Nonsense Guide to Writing Persuasive Copy for Your Business.)
So, that’s why I started Filthy Rich Writer. Everything I know, everything I had to learn through sweat and tears, I’m passing on to you. The information I’m giving you is the same information I’ve used to train writers who’ve worked for me. And, boy, have they become successful! Even if you know absolutely nothing about copywriting, advertising or marketing, I’m going to give you all of the tools, tips, and skills you need for your successful career.
Why? Because there are a few simple things I live by:
- There need to be more good copywriters in the world (there are a lot of bad ones)
- People should be able to make a ton of money at writing
- A whole lotta skill and a little bit of talent can get you anywhere
- Good writers help each other
Believe me: there’s plenty of room for us all to succeed. And more of us need to feel how amazing it is to make a good living—a great living—as a writer.
Why It’s Called Filthy Rich Writer
When I was naming this company, I could have gone with something more straightforward like “New Copywriters Training” or “Make a Living Writing.” But I didn’t. Watch to hear why I named the company “Filthy Rich Writer.”
