Making a Writing Contract
Writers and their clients use Writing Contracts as a means of documenting the details of work that will be delivered. Signed by the writer and the client, this essential document can help define each party's expectations. Unlike the blank PDF templates that you may discover on another website, your Writing Agreement comes with the option of Document Defense®, so an attorney can assess the situation and take action if you don't get paid or have any other problem.
Whether you are doing technical writing, marketing writing, or otherwise, a Writing Contract is a good idea for every writer. Using this document most likely will be good for your business because of these benefits:
If you and/or the client decide against signing a Writing Agreement, neither party will be able to experience the associated protections.

As you may expect, Writing Contracts made with Rocket Lawyer also include the typical legalese regarding the non-employer relationship, dispute resolution methods, and reimbursement for losses. During the process of making your agreement, you also can designate the jurisdiction under which it will be governed. Further personalized editing is permitted, as well.
With Rocket Lawyer, every Writing Contract that you make can be tailored to you and your specific needs. Simply click on the "Make document" button and answer a few questions. You might also consider having an attorney in our On Call network review it for you. This solution is often going to be much less expensive than finding and working with your average lawyer, whose hourly fees could add up to anywhere from hundreds of dollars to thousands.
Attached alongside each Writing Contract, there will be a set of instructions for what is next with regard to finalizing your document. You also can engage with the contract in any of the following ways: making edits, saving it in PDF format or as a Word file, printing it out, and signing it using RocketSign® electronic signatures. Most importantly, everyone should get a copy of the final agreement.
The answer may vary depending on whom you approach, but sometimes a lawyer may not even agree to review contracts that they did not work on. A more favorable approach would be through attorney services at Rocket Lawyer. As a Premium member, you can ask for guidance from an attorney with experience in business or ask additional questions related to your Writing Agreement. As always, Rocket Lawyer is here to help.
