Here's what I found on http://www.awaionline.com/about/.

A few quotes from that site: "… as the world’s leading publisher of direct-response copywriting, travel writing, photography and graphic design home-study programs …"

"Not long ago, J.B. was $200,000 in debt with 7 kids, no cash in the bank and zero income. Now he makes six figures ($45,000 in one 2-month period alone!), is free of debt, free to spend quality time with his family, and is living the life of his dreams … all while writing from home using the secrets in AWAI’s copywriting program."

You can do what you like, jbjune, but I'm running far away from this one.

Why is Writer's Digest affiliated with this organization if it is a scam? I received my introduction to it from Writer's Digest. What proof do you have that it is indeed a scam? If it is I no longer want to be associated with Writer's Digest.

...if you're referring to publish america, while it may not be an out and out 'scam' it certainly does take shameful advantage of unwary new writers... see how here:

http://www.invirtuo.cc/prededitors/pebpublisham.htm

always check out agents/publishers/workshops/etc. on this site, before considering contacting them... also google for negative feedback and go over their websites carefully, to make sure they're legit and worth contacting...

how did that 'introduction' to pa come to you from wd?... was it just an ad appearing over the site, or what?...
