This just broke on the FV Newswire. It was actually on my radar as the same announcement went out on PRZOOM-NewswireToday on 7/2. Of course, it's been distributed internationally and merits re-distribution. Pardon me but this supersedes anything coming out of Israel, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan or North Korea today.
Again... Mona made the best decision of her life when she enrolled in a copywriting program after graduating from an esteemed university in California. However, she was soon faced with the decision of whether to copy write for a firm or to start her own copywriting business. She instinctively chose the latter. She takes pleasure in seeing her clients prosper.
And who the fuck cares? Death, where is thy sting.

I would like to find out more about this copywriting program. Specifically, what is the difference between the verbs "to copywrite" and "to copy write." I assume a professional, trained copywriter would instantly recognize the difference, but have long pondered whether a copy writer possesses similar access to the cabalistic teachings of Copy.
It is not quite clear if it was at the "esteemed university" where Mona had enrolled for a copywriting program. Doesn't read that way.
"The Internet makes it possible to reach millions of clients... for less money that you could imagine".
It's too choice for elaboration.
Really cheeky too. Imagine estimating the limits of any one's imagination? I'd never do that to Richard Edelman, let alone Mona. Oh the unrestrained hubris. It always starts on a simple assumption before skidding out of control.
As a trained copywriter (one of my many fields), I can tell you that there isn't a difference between "copywrite" and "copy write". If, when I am doing copywriting, I was asked what I do, I would say that I "write copy". I've never heard anyone in the industry use the word as a verb.
Most copywriting programs are not associated with any college. I can direct you to one of the better ones, if you want to change careers, however.
I was just kidding. I guess I need to start using a smiley face. I just thought it was funny that someone who sold themselves as a copywriter would be inconsistent on the use of the word within the same press release.
I am flattered that you all care about me and my business so very much.
Amanda, the free publicity is fabulous!
As for John, and his remark stating, "I assume a professional, trained copywriter would instantly recognize the difference, but have long pondered whether a copy writer possesses similar access to the cabalistic teachings of Copy."
I highly recommend that you proofread your own writing before you comment on my so-called "errors."
I don't have the time to copyedit your mistakes, but thanks for the laugh.
Please don't put out releases like this again. It embarrasses all of us.
