Personal Writers are better than Writing Companies to work with? telemimiThreads: 1Posts: 6Joined: Jul 18, 2012 Writer Jul 18, 2012, 01:56PM | #1 It is better to work with a personal writer than a writing agency. There are thousands of good writers out there but how do you find them? Ask google. Some of them will pop up. mreThreads: 1Posts: 197Joined: Jul 14, 2008 Jul 18, 2012, 02:04PM | #2 Personal writers? You mean independent writers I am guessing as opposed to freelance writers.Freelance writers and independent writers are one in the same. Independent writers just publicize their availability whereas a company will do the publicizing for the freelance writer. However, you get the same writer in each aspect. For instance, I am a freelance and independent writer. I write occasionally for a website and do my own thing. I guarantee you nearly all writers will fall into this category or write exclusively for a company as a freelancer.

This is why you've refrained from the main topic. telemimiThreads: 1Posts: 6Joined: Jul 18, 2012 Writer Jul 18, 2012, 09:53PM | #6 Well said MeoKhan. I meant independent writers. I am also an independent freelance writer. HelenrobThreads: 1Posts: 102Joined: Jun 23, 2012 Writer Jul 19, 2012, 02:30AM | #7 I think freelance writers are much better choice.

Game over..try again. andywoods57Threads: 1Posts: 97Joined: Jul 21, 2012 Writer Jul 22, 2012, 10:43PM | #11 Personal writer can by better than writing companies because they depend on word of mouth publicity and therefore are more diligent in their work. But it is a risk you have to take both for independent writer or company. exactThreads: 2Posts: 41Joined: May 11, 2012 Jul 31, 2012, 07:03AM | #12 Andywoods57 where do you come from originally?
