Write Choice Services has sponsored Write Here, Write Now since its first broadcast in April, 2011. Dr. Tim Morrison, the host of Write Here, Write Now, is also the president of Write Choice Services. This show provides listeners with an opportunity to hear from and learn about the independent contractors affiliated with Write Choice Services. Vanessa Lowry, permanent guest host of Write Here, Write Now, interviews Betsy Rhame-Minor, Jamie Bailey and Emily Lees. Discover how each of these individuals found their way to being an independent contractor with Write Choice Services; what their particular area of interest is in writing; the type of client project they enjoy working on. Oh, and listeners will most likely learn what these three women hold in common professionally that Dr. Tim doesn’t even come close to being able to claim. And, if given the chance, Dr. Tim will probably counter with what he sees as his “school of hard knocks” equivalent.
