  1. Andrew Ellery,

    The SR Education Group is a publisher of resources for potential students, and were currently in search of experts who are willing to share their Social Worker expertise. Your name came up in a Twitter search for professionals in this field. In appreciation of your time and insight, were offering a $50 Amazon.com gift card in exchange for a short article.

    You can see an example of what were looking for at http://www.onlineclasses.net/expert-education-opinions

    Let me know if this is something you might be interested in, and Ill provide details.
