How much do you charge?
For each project, I will talk to you so that I can evaluate the complexity of the project and estimate the number of hours required to complete it. Questions that I will have include:
For smaller projects, I typically charge by the hour. For larger projects, I prepare a customized quote based on the requirements of the project.
As part of each project kickoff, I prepare a scope of work and production schedule that details the agreed-upon review/revision cycle. I will work with you to determine a process that fits the project and meets your needs.
In addition to scheduled meetings, I remain available for communication throughout the project, using a combination of email, telephone, web conferencing, and Skype.
I have a BA in Biology, an MS in Botany and an MA in English. I have 17+ years of experience as a technical writer. For more information, please visit About Me.
For small projects that are paid in full on project launch, the signed proposal serves as our scope of work and contract.
For larger projects that are paid in installments, we sign an Independent Contractor agreement that outlines the scope of the project, due dates, payments, and copyright ownership. If you do not have an Independent Contractor agreement, I will provide one.
For small projects, I ask for full payment up front. For large projects, I require 50% at project launch, with the balance paid in installments at project milestones.
