Top Marketers Travel to Delray Beach in Search of New Copywriting and Graphic Design Talent

DELRAY BEACH, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 19, 2006 -- American Writers & Artists Inc. (AWAI) today announced record registrations for its annual Job Fair taking place during the company's direct-response copywriting and graphic design conference November 1-4, 2006 in Delray Beach, Florida.

Each fall, talented aspiring copywriters and graphic designers from around the world travel to South Florida for AWAI's FastTrack to Success Bootcamp. In just 3 days the attendees' professional dreams become a reality through specially crafted seminars and workshops led by an all-star lineup including Brian Tracy, Joe Vitale, Herchell Gordon-Lewis, Bob Bly and many others.

The Job Fair, hosted by DirectResponseJobs.com, AWAI's online job board for both direct-response copywriters and graphic designers, is a highlight of the annual conference.

"AWAI's Job Fair gives marketers a first shot at our most ambitious, best-trained copywriters and graphic designers," said Katie Yeakle, AWAI's Executive Director. "It's the most efficient venue around for marketers to meet and 'test drive' 250 up-and-coming direct-response superstars. At last year's Job Fair, over half of the marketers who attended formed relationships with new writers and artists who have been making money for them ever since."

During the Job Fair, direct-response marketers from companies such as Nightingale-Conant, The Motley Fool, Agora Financial, Schaeffer's Investments and dozens others, will scout the latest talent looking for copywriters and graphic designers who can help them boost response from their direct-marketing efforts.

"The AWAI-trained copywriters are the best in the business! I have been nothing short of impressed with the quality of the work, and use copywriters who have an affiliation with AWAI on a regular basis," said Randy Coon, VP of Marketing, The Motley Fool (www.fool.com).

"What I like about the AWAI Job Fair is that it's a great place to find raw copywriting talent," said Sandy Franks, Executive Publisher of the Taipan Group, an affiliate of Agora Publishing (www.dynamicmarketalert.com). "I've attended for the past two years, and each time I find a copywriter who I can rely on to complete copywriting assignments. Plus, you get to meet them in person, and the spec assignment allows you to 'prescreen' the candidates."

This year's Job Fair will take place in the evening on November 3rd, 2006 at the Delray Beach Marriot. And while only AWAI Bootcamp copywriting and graphic design attendees are admitted, marketers can participate at no charge by contacting AWAI at jobfair@awaionline.com or 561-278-5557.
