    Hey Guys,

    I'm new to BHW (as you can see from my join date :p), I'm a copywriter by trade and I wanted to see who you guys learn from the most when your looking for copywriting info?

    Noticed there's not a HUGE amount of info in here about copywriting, but hoping that we can start changing that up.

    I'll start off with the guys I read letters from the most:

    - Frank Kern (get's alot of hate I know, but his letters and emails are quality)
    - Pete Godfrey (another Aussie, quality direct response writer that share heaps of info for free)
    - John Carlton (guy is an insane writer, a letter from him will beat any of the CB letters you see these days)

    Share away :)

    So true Reishii, Mal Emery (another Aussie) uses a very Dan Kennedy style in his marketing as well..

    Gary Halbert--One of John Carlton's teachers, Claude Hopkins--those old school guys had this stuff figured out, and human psychology has not changed all that much!
