One of the best ways attorneys can market their law office is to write a legal advice book. If you are an expert in a specific area of law, such as personal injury, DUI, social security disability, divorce, workers compensation, car insurance, and many other subjects, becoming a published author catapults you ahead of the competition.

Here at Word Association, we love good poetry. People write poetry because they enjoy the challenge of expressing themselves, or as T.S. Eliot argued, the challenge of escaping from themselves. Either way, poetry is a challenge—whether it is written in a form as tight as a sonnet or whether it is written in free verse—which Robert Frost said is like playing tennis without a net. Poetry may be the most unmarketable of the genres but if you want to publish your poems we would like to see them. If we like them, we’ll try to make you an offer you can’t refuse.
