Policies & Terms for Writing Services Clients

Writing services for print or digital media may be provided to individuals, a business, or a publication (“client”). Prior to commencing any writing project or assignment, the client and I will develop a Project Specification Agreement that details, for example, the cost for writing services, project delivery date, copyright terms, and other information relevant to the timely completion of the project.

Unique content is the goal for every client and project. However, there is a high demand for content development across industries and topics, particularly health, marketing, education, and inspirational/personal growth. When more than one client asks for content on the same topic, I write each assignment unique to the specifications provided by the client, including but not limited to format, word count, voice, and audience. Digital verification that content was written exclusively for a given project is available upon request.

Changes in Policies & Terms

In order to remain current, policies and terms of use are subject to change at any time. Please periodically review these policies and terms of use.
