ROLES OF WRITING.
William Siegfried –
“the people doing practice aren’t doing the research and aren’t doing the writing. Writing
general interest articles, something that is catchy and gets you publicity when you’re
marketing yourself to clients, private practices would like to show off an article that they
did because it impresses people, lots of self publishing as in publishing your own books,
outside of the university it’s for publicity.”
