Six Differences

Six Diffs 1As a group, come up with six meaningful differences among the profiles of digital writers written by this class. These may be differences in (a) what the profiles tell us about the role of writing in various lives or careers, or (b)  in the writing of the profiles themselves. Be ready to point to specific profiles that illustrate these differences. Email me your list. We’ll talk about them on Wednesday.
