Storytellers: Terms & Conditions

Terms and Conditions

General

All discussions are kept in confidence. I will not share or reproduce any of your writing or other materials without your permission.

Membership of Need Words’ Storytellers is charged at £49 per month, payable by standing order. Details available when you decide to join.

Group workshops / other group sessions take place monthly, although some variation to the pattern may occur as opportunities arise and as the needs of the members dictate.

1:1 support is at 45 minutes per month, accessed face to face, by telephone or by Skype. This time does not roll over.

There is a three month tie-in period when you become a member of Storytellers. After these three months have expired, membership is on a rolling monthly basis. Please give a month’s notice if you wish to leave Storytellers.

Proofreading, editing, commentary and critique services are charged at the fees listed, unless preferential rates are agreed upon due to membership of Need Words’ Storytellers or Need Words’ Writers’ Pool, 50% payable in advance and the balance on completion.

I cannot promise you will get a publishing contract or that you will become rich.

Any discussions regarding publishing options are to be regarded as general provision of information, not as advice about the publishing path you should take.

Ghost Writing

I do not write defamatory or libelous material, or material which is likely to be used to incite others to hatred.

I cannot write a dissertation or any other academically assessed document for you, since this would constitute plagiarism. I will happily proofread such a text, though.

£500 non-refundable down-payment is required to secure this service.

Further payments are requested by invoice on the 28th of each month to bring payment up to date. Payment is requested within 14 days.
