A friend who works freelance (mainly as a journalist) has been approached about providing the copywriting for an annual report of a corporation (in the utility field) where she lives - Singapore. The deadline is tight: just 2 weeks to read the voluminous materials, meet with management - probably one day - and do the write-up. Then to be available for a week or so to make any necessary revisions.
The job scope includes the following:
- Drafting (around 75 to 80 pages)
- Meetings with management
- Professional reading of reference materials
5 . Liaison
I mentioned there were quite a few writers on the SDMB, and she asked if I could sound you out for any advice/feedback on the sort of fee she could charge. She says fees in Singapore are slightly lower than might be expected in the States, and she can make the necessary adjustments to numbers quoted here.
