Hi, guys

Below is a discussion I had with someone offline...names have been deleted.
The issue I'd like to address is the part about senior/junior writers.

>From my perspective, the senior designation isn't based on the position
hierarchy at a location, but the writer's ability to perform their job at
varying degrees of complexity and independence and with certain levels of
direction.

Opinions?
