It’s been almost two years since I got the email.

“Sonia and I want to hire you,” Brian Clark wrote. I was not a professional copywriter. I had not spent $100,000 on ad school tuition. I was not well known on the Internet or elsewhere.
I may tell the entire story later, but the primary reason Brian and Sonia hired me for this gig revolved around a sustained demonstration of my abilities as a writer. Specifically, I’d written and published over 300 poems to my website over a period of three years.
