What’s the Difference? Academic writing sites are everywhere youlook “ there are so many it is really ridiculous. As a freelance writer, I have written for many of them and really enjoyed it. I love researching a topic or subject and creating an excellent piece useable for a student. No qualms “ not one. However, I do have to take issue with those who down cast anyone who creates academic works for others. First, what difference is it to you? Cheating you say? Really? And what do you call ghostwriting? Is that not a formof cheating too? But I bet many so-called academic writing slanders are ghostwriters. In technical terms, ghostwriting is someone creating a piece of writing and selling it to another person who then portrays that work as their own. I fail to see the difference? Oh, academic integrity? Really? And just how much integrity does an instructor or professor have that clearly has no care or regard for their students? If they truly did then there would virtually be no need for academic writing companies. The problem arises when the professor is too busy achieving tenure or status to give a hoot about their students. They do not teach, they lecture and want their students to regurgitate what they espouse. That is not teaching. If a writer has an ethical dilemma (god only knows why if they ghostwrite) with academic writing, fine, just go about your business. Dont preach, just go. They are plenty of us who do enjoy academic writing and we do not need or want your dribble. If you feel it is somehow wrong or cheating, well just look in the mirror before you get on your high horse next time. No one is perfect and some even need help and support.
