I drafted the above fee listing to give you a general idea, but I’m happy to work out per-hour, per-project, and retainer-based fees. For larger projects, I would prefer to work in terms of milestones or receive a 25-50% retainer up front. Also, revisions are a natural part of the relationship between a writer and client. I will happily perform two rounds of revisions. If you are still not satisfied at that point, we may need to discuss possible underlying issues.

I accept payments via PayPal, Stripe, Zelle, and check.

I’m happy to work out a mutually satisfying arrangement on all these matters and draw up a contract.
