AMWA presents: Let’s talk MONEY!


The American Medical Writers Association – Canada (Montreal area) Chapter presents:

Let’s talk MONEY!

Sunday, May 17, 2009, 5:30 pm
Cuisine Bangkok 2 (on the terrace, weather permitting)
1824 St. Catherine West, Montreal, H3H 1M1

Would you like to know what rates companies are paying freelancers (or freelancers are charging) but don’t know who to ask (or are afraid)? Well, let’s talk money!

Topics will include:

  1. Discussion about what rates to charge for what type of writing/editing activities and informal “secret” survey about what rates other freelancers are charging*.
  2. How much businesses are paying freelancers for these activities. And whether an hourly or project-fee makes more sense.
  3. How to deal with and collect from clients who pay late (or don’t pay at all).
  4. As always, tips for finding clients are welcome from anyone in with advice to share.

Please feel free to forward this invite to anyone who may be interested.

Please RSVP Crystal by May 15th (although don’t think you can’t come to the event if you don’t RSVP in time!), but please give me as much notice as possible so I can let the restaurant know.

I welcome all AMWA members and non-members to this discussion. (There is no fee, only what you order for food/or beverages). You don’t need to buy dinner if you prefer not to, just order a soft drink or something.

We look forward to seeing you.
