Negotiating a Collaboration Agreement between two or more collaborating Writers forces the parties to resolve important issues before they invest a lot of time and effort in the collaboration. Difficult questions may arise during the writing process that are best negotiated beforehand. Who has ownership of work that has been created and in what percentage?
The Writers are well advised to enter a written Collaboration Agreement before one word is written on the Project. If the relationship is not going to work, it is best to know in the beginning. A lot of time, effort and potential negative emotions are prevented.
This Agreement between the independent Writers is drafted in plain English that is easy to read and comprehend. This is a four page, nineteen clause legal Agreement. The Agreement may be filled in on your computer or printed out and filled in later.
