Since its inception, Damn Fine Words has changed the way people do business – through words alone. Each time a new session of this writing course opens to new students, it fills up quickly, because it’s a big deal to business owners:
It teaches you how to improve your writing skills with effective content-creation techniques. You’ll boost your writing speed, produce direct impact with your readers and create tangible bottom-line results… with every word you write.
So if you’re a freelancer, a small business owner or a solopreneur, you don’t want to miss out on the course. It’s coming your way this February, so get on the list now to be first to know when registration opens.
Each time I prepare for a new session, I also open up a special writing contest. You see, many people tell me they wish they could register for Damn Fine Words, because they know that if they could just get in the course…
- …they could set their business firmly on the path of success, because they’d finally have the skills to write engaging website copy that pulls in much-needed clients.
- …they could improve their current skills and make more money, instead of having to guess at what to write and struggling to make the meagre income they’re slaving to earn right now.
- …they could feel excited and happy about writing for their business for the first time in their lives, instead of agonizing over every piece they have to produce.
People know that Damn Fine Words is one of the best writing courses out there and that it could change the game for their business. It could even change their lives.
I want to help make that change happen.
Welcome to the Damn Fine Words Writing Contest.
This contest is a friendly competition where your sincerity, desire to learn, and motivation to succeed counts more than anything. This contest isn’t about the quality of your writing so much as the quality of your thoughts on writing… and what you would do if you improve your writing skills.
Here’s how to enter the contest:
Write a blog post about why writing is important to you and your success. Why becoming a better writer could literally change your life. How not feeling confident about your writing skills has affected your business, and what it would mean to you to have that obstacle swept away.
I want to know why it’s important for you to be in the Damn Fine Words writing course.
There’s something I need to stress: Damn Fine Words is a writing course for business owners, so if you have an idea for a business you’d love to start, an existing business that isn’t doing so well or an established business that could be doing much better, let me know.
Here’s what you can win:
One person will win a full scholarship to the February session of Damn Fine Words (retail value $1,599). The first runner-up will win a 50% scholarship applicable to their registration for the February session.
The course lasts 10 weeks, and both winners become full-access students who benefit from all the lessons, hands-on exercises, immediately applicable advice, interactive members-only area – and my personal support and feedback throughout the entire course.
The Writing Course Contest Rules

There are no points given for correct grammar or spelling. There are no points given for fancy words or brilliant prose. In fact, there are no points given for the quality of writing at all.
I’m looking for two people who really want to be in this writing course. I want to work with people who are driven to succeed and who understand this writing course can take their business to the next level. I want students who will show up every day and do their very best.
I’m looking for people who know that better writing skills could change everything about their potential for success, and who are ready, willing and able to commit to their self-improvement. You don’t need pretty language or correct grammar or finely-honed writing to convey sincerity. Trust me – I’ll see it.
The contest closes January 23 at 7am (Montreal time). I’ll select two winning posts and contact winners directly, so be sure to have a Contact page on your site or to let me know your email address!
