Negotiating contracts is one of the most challenging parts of freelancing. To help you out with that, CMG Freelance has planned a webinar called “The Savvy Freelancer’s Guide to Contract Negotiation.”
It’s scheduled for Wednesday, February 15 at 6 PM EST and will be led by author and freelance writer Ann Douglas.
Negotiating a writing contract doesn’t have to be scary. In fact, it can be a positive and empowering experience. In this practical and thought-provoking webinar, Ann will teach you how to analyze a freelance writing agreement so that you’re totally clear about what you’re being asked to sign.
Then she’ll share some insider advice on negotiating the best possible contract terms for yourself — and in a way you can feel good about. Expect to be informed, inspired, and entertained during this information-packed session.
Ann Douglas is a bestselling parenting author (her most recent book is Parenting Through the Storm), an award-winning magazine writer, and the weekend parenting columnist for CBC Radio. She is also a powerful advocate for and supporter of Canadian freelance writers.
In February 2013, she went public with her decision to resign from the parenting column she had been writing for The Toronto Star. (She detailed her reasons in this much-read blog post for Story Board: “Why I Am No Longer Writing The Column I Loved for The Toronto Star”). In June 2013, she became the second person ever to be awarded a Lifetime Membership by the Professional Writers Association of Canada, in recognition of her contributions to the freelance writing profession.
