There isn’t a magic formula, but there are definitely some keys to your success. You’ll want to keep these keys in mind whether you take on the occasional freelance writing project or you make your living frequently penning words for others. The key we will discuss today is your writer’s agreement. A good writer’s agreement helps make sure you get paid for the work you do.
Whether you keep it to one page or it spans a dozen, your writer’s agreement should have certain pieces of information that clearly outline the project. Your agreement is there to make sure expectations for the project are clear and to protect both your client and you.
