rates include the actual writing, light research and reasonable
consultation / interview with relevant main party (e.g. in the case of
an autobiography, the person whose story is being told).
Should extensive consultation or interviews be required with other parties this will be billed for by time at the standard consultation rate of R200 per hour
10% Discount applies to all projects where partial credit is given i.e my name appears on the final product eg. "As told to Darrell Cuthbert" or "With Darrell Cuthbert"
Milestones to be agreed upfront and partial payments made as they are are reached
reports, proposals, presentations etc. are by their nature complex and
require more than simple written content (graphs, tables, custom
graphics etc) The word count may be low and not accurately reflect the
amount of work done.
Because of this per word charging is difficult and I prefer to work on a per hour basis, normal charge being R200 per hour.
Hours required for a task and a detailed brief to be discussed and agreed up front, so there are no surprises for either party.
