You want to break into copywriting. But you don’t know where to get started.
Or you’re not loving the idea of losing two or more years of your life and $34,800 in portfolio school or earning some other degree. Good news: you don’t need a copywriting certificate, certification, or degree to become a copywriter (anyone telling you otherwise truly hasn’t worked in this business!).
You do, however, need training.
That’s why we created the Comprehensive Copywriting Course (CCA)—to give you everything you need to get started as a copywriter, whether you want to work on staff at an agency or company, or build a thriving freelance copywriting business of your own.
About the Comprehensive Copywriting Academy
The Comprehensive Copywriting Academy includes everything you need to learn how to write copy, as well as how to stand out from other copywriters (trust us, there’s plenty of work to go around!), create an online portfolio, find and land clients, and more!
It’s everything our founder Nicki Krawczyk has learned over 20+ years working in the business, not just as a six-figure freelancer, but also working as a contractor, on staff, within ad agencies, and as a Copy Director for multi-billion dollar companies, solopreneurs, and every sized business in between.
So, no matter what YOU want your career to look like, Nicki and our team of copywriting and marketing experts can help you get there, whether it’s writing from a beach in Bali, working from your kitchen table, or thriving on staff with a company.
There are so many ways to build a thriving copywriting career (as many ways as there are copywriters!). Our system ensures you can choose what works best for you, even as what’s best for you changes and evolves.
The best way to learn more about the CCA is to sign up for our free copywriting training where you’ll not only learn more about the CCA, but also how you can build your copywriting career in just 30 minutes each day.
Why It’s the Most Comprehensive Copywriting Course
This isn’t the type of course where you learn about copywriting, but don’t learn how to find and land work. Or you learn how to write for one type of copy project and no others. This is designed to be comprehensive (it’s how we got the name!).
And it’s designed to help you hit your career goals, whether that’s working part-time or full-time. From a villa in Italy or from your kitchen table. On staff or as a work-from-home freelance. 6 figures or side income to support your next vacation.
What You’ll Learn
Through six, online, self-paced foundational modules, and 145+ deep-dive courses you’ll get step-by-step instruction from copywriting pros. You’ll learn how to:

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.
Now, with a successful copywriting career, the mortgage is safe, and he wants to help you! As an experienced coach, Stuart can’t wait to work with you to develop your copywriting voice and is in your corner to support you as you grow.
Once an in-house PR pro, Stacy ditched the 80-hour corporate work weeks for freelancing freedom. The result? More money, less time spent working, better life balance.
As a coach, Stacy is here to help you reach your goals: a portfolio that impresses, strategic pitching that gets you clients, and confidence to know you can build the life you’ve always wanted.
Ashley started her copywriting journey near the end of 2019. As an Afro-Latina, she often struggled with her identity and, as a result, wondered whether or not she could be a good copywriter.
She got her first client 7 months later. She closed her first retainer client for $6,000 4 months later. Within that same period, Ashley realized she made $21k.
Copywriting has changed her life and she is determined to help others achieve their dreams the way the CCA did for her.
Abigail knows how to turn a “gut feeling” into action. Seeing the big picture helped her start her copywriting career 4 days before she was laid off from her full-time job. And, thanks to the CCA, Abigail landed on her feet and built a full-time freelance career, all while playing caretaker at home.
Now that she’s learned to create her own successful copywriter career, Abigail uses her insights to guide you toward building your own successes!
