Work with you may encompass interviewing, copywriting, report writing, editing, Plain English 'translation', proofreading, PR, press release writing and sending out press releases. 

Fees, usually hourly, come into play whether  the work is face-to-face, on the telephone or by email. You can also negotiate to pay a set fee for a piece of work. We will not sell you services you do not need.

Meetings

The initial chat is free. However, if interviewing during that talk may incur a fee at the hourly rate we agree. In these days of teleworking we try, whenever possible, to avoid lots of meetings thus saving you time and money. 

Payment Terms

PR and publishing clients are usually invoiced on completion of the work. Proofreading clients are usually asked to pay half of the fee upfront due to the fact that we rarely meet in person. For all clients payment in full is to be made on receipt of the invoice unless otherwise stated. I am a member of the Pay on Time organisation, a movement that encourages small businesses to get paid swiftly. I reserve the right to charge statutory interest in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Act 1998 and subsequent revisions and amendments. I provide BACS details or cheques are also accepted.
