Action Words

Frank Chamberlin has been running his own very successful business as a freelance copywriter for more than 20 years. He has prepared copy for countless not for profit organisations around Australia. What he has not done in copywriting, is not worth bothering about. He has been presenting this “Copywriting Essentials” course for FIA for more than seven years and participants are always happy with the practical guidance they receive.


“At Birdlife Australia we have engaged Frank Chamberlin from to write fundraising appeals for us and we are very happy with the results. So far, every one of them has exceeded our budget expectations. Frank really knows what he is doing in fundraising copy and our results prove it.”
