Example text

The estimate, confirmation of assignment, and invoice exist for different reasons. If the author knew in advance that a confirmation of assignment would be signed for every job, the estimate and invoice could be far briefer. The estimate would merely describe the assignment, give a fee, and state that the assignment will be governed by a confirmation of assignment which must be signed by both parties before work commences. If there were a confirmation of assignment signed by both parties, the invoice would show an amount due and state that it was being issued in conformity with the terms of the confirmation of assignment.

The negotiation checklists offer a map for the negotiation of any form. All forms, whether the author’s or someone else’s, can be changed. Before using these forms, the author should consider reviewing them with his or her attorney. This provides the opportunity to learn whether local or state laws may make it worthwhile to modify any of the provisions. For example, would it be wise to include a provision for arbitration of disputes, or are the local courts speedy and inexpensive, making an arbitration provision unnecessary?

Allow the author to accept or reject any assignment obtained by the agent. (Paragraph 2) Specify that a reasonable number of writing samples will be supplied to the agent by the author. (Paragraph 3) Try to negotiate for an at-will termination clause. If the author cannot, try to provide for a short term, such as one year. (Paragraph 4) This interplays with the termination provision. Since termination is permitted on thirty days notice in Paragraph 10, the length of the term is of less importance in this contract.
