Hi everyone, does anyone have a good contract example to share? The contract creator on this website is down... Thanks!
What sort of work is the contract covering? I've written all sorts of contracts and agreements and then had them adjusted by a lawyer. In general much of your typical contract language is boiler plate and can be found with a detailed google search. Then once you compile 5 or so samples with language you like just use the sections that apply, and customize as needed. But always have your lawyer look it over!

http://millo.co/contractsforcreatives/ - great contract templates!
I bought that package and was able to adapt many of the contracts for what I needed, they are awesome and totally worth it, IMO.
The Graphic Artist's Guild "Pricing and Ethical Guidelines" has sample contracts in them for a variety of design needs.
These sound like excellent sources. Another one is the Author's Guild which sells a book of contract information and sample contracts specifically for authors of books.
Based on articles in the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) Journal and the workshop on the business aspects of a career, I include about 14 points in my contract. These include a payment schedule, provision for a kill fee, additional charges for late payments, clear description of the product or service I will provide, outline of the project, and specification of background material. Since the client usually provides the background material and always reviews my final draft before submission to the FDA or publication, the agreement exempts me from liability for scientific content.
I've found a professional or businesslike contract impresses clients.
After you draft a couple of contracts, follow Cassius's advice and have your attorney review one before you use it. Best wishes to you, Tina, in your endeavors.
I've got a couple of questions. Please tell us more about yourself, Tina. There are several people with your name online. Are you the nurse from the Philippines? A writer or graphic artist?
Christine and Wendy, how applicable are your references for medical and scientific writers? Are there key provisions you feel would be of benefit to me?
Look forward to hearing from you.
Simply put, a contract is associate degree agreement between 2 or a lot of individuals or entities that makes a duty or responsibility. Entities getting into a contract would possibly embody individual individuals, companies, companies and organizations, however there are some conditions that has got to be met for the contract to carry water within the court.I have some smart work expertise with a http://buddycab.in and my words are clearly supported what I felt through such processes within the past
Tina, please let us know how you're doing.
Hi all, thanks for the helpful information! I didn't hear from the company for a while and assumed I didn't get the job, but I did, so now I am back to researching this. The job is for editing/copy-writing websites, company materials, advertising, etc.
Do people recommend not going with the sample ones on this website? Are particular ones more applicable for writing work that is not about authorship?
PS, @ Charles, not in the Philippines, but in USA!
Tina, go ahead and use the sample if it meets your needs. However, before you actually send it to the client for their signature, have your attorney review it.
Tina: I will back up Charles here. As an attorney, I draft and review contract language frequently. Templates sometimes do the job, but not always, and they generally benefit from a little tweaking.
Hopefully, both sides will comply with the contract and you will never need to use it as a cudgel, but I have seen instances where parties had to enforce a badly-written contract, and in that instance, things can go sideways. Quickly. And if that's the case, you will pay a lawyer more to fix things (and not everything can be fixed!) than you would have paid to have the contract drafted/customized.
Hi everyone. I'm currently working full time for a firm in NJ; however, as of June 1 I will be moving to Massachusetts. I have been an office based employee for 8 years and now they are deciding to bring me on as a freelancer. I have a few weeks to put a contract together and I'm not sure where to start, specifically because my work in internal communications is so broad. I work with various teams throughout the organization and on various tasks during the day. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
