My Copywriting Terms and Conditions


I charge on a by-project basis, which will be determined based on the projected scope of work. This might include: 
•    Research
•    Outline
•    Writing the first draft
•    Two sets of revisions
•    Final proofread 
•    Anything else mutually agreed prior to commencement. 
Following discussion with you I will confirm my project fee in writing, and I will require your written acceptance of this prior to commencement of any work.
Once the project commences, the agreed fee is deemed to be incurred unless we have agreed to payment milestones. You have no right to withhold or subtract payment based on your critical response to the copy I write for you. 
I am not registered for VAT.

Alterations to project scope

You may, at any time, request alterations to the project scope by email. After a period of 5 days, I will confirm any changes to the project and fees. Should the project scope change substantially, I reserve the right to change my fee. 

Payment terms

My fee is due within 30 days of agreed completion. 
If final payment is not made within 30 days, I will send a friendly reminder. Should an invoice remain unpaid, I shall seek recovery via a debt collection service and charge any additional costs incurred as a result.

If I have not received any feedback or comments within two weeks of submitting work to you (at any stage - the initial draft or subsequent edits), I will assume you are happy the work has been completed.


As a freelance copywriter, I retain copyright of any works produced by me until I have received full payment for the work undertaken. 
Should payment not be made, I reserve the right to refuse the use of text, written by me, for any purposes and to pursue legal redress for its unauthorised use. 
I reserve the right to use extracts of any work I produce for you in the promotion of

Force majeure

Neither party shall be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure results from events or circumstances outside of their reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, strikes, lock outs, accidents, war, fire, the act or omission of government, or  telecommunications carrier, operator or administration or other competent authority, or the delay or failure in manufacture, production, or supply by third parties of equipment or services, and the party shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of its obligations after notifying the other party of the nature and extent of such events.


I do not accept responsibility for any issues, claims, costs, or expenses arising because of the work I undertake at your request.
I will take every precaution to avoid errors, omissions, misrepresentations, and other inaccuracies. However, the final responsibility for published material belongs with you, the client. 

This contract will be governed by and construed in accordance with English law.
