Writing Under Pressure with Dan Nelken | The Course
The creative scenarios that always gave me the most near-death experiences were when I was put on the spot—“Hey Dan, you’re a writer. What’s a better way of saying x?” Or when I had a very short amount of time to turn headlines around—“All writers, take the next 15 minutes to write headlines and bring them to my desk.”

I spent over a year identifying writing and thinking techniques to help me write headlines quicker and with more confidence than I’ve had through most of my career. And the content works.

One of the challenges as a copywriter is making sure you think from enough angles. This course gives you more angles than you could ever need. It's valuable for new copywriters but just as valuable if you have decent experience. It has made me more confident with my copywriting and I was already comfortable. But it also made the process a lot more fun. I can't recommend it enough. Make sure you get Dan's book too. If you're like me you'll have it next to you at all times.

The course was worth MY time, and what’s best, it’s well worth YOUR time, if you're looking to enhance your wordsmithery. I know it's a course I'll mainline again and again, and his resource at the end is worth the course alone. Plus all the banter in the chat… solid 💯

Dan’s course is the difference between “the client wants more options” and “the client can’t pick a favorite.” If you suffer from the cramps of crossed fingers or the pinch of prayer beads in your palm, this is how to reclaim your confidence.
