A writer agreement is a contract in which the said writer agrees to perform writing services in accordance with the proposed production as stated in the conditions and terms of the contract including the assignment, use of work, ownership of the work, performance standard, representations, indemnities, writing credit and binding effect, to name a few.
The terms and conditions of each contract vary according to the nature of the writing services and can be negotiated by both the writer and the employer until they reach agreed upon terms. There are two standard writer agreements: one for writers who are directly employed and one for writers who work as loan outs. However, there are contracts for individual writers as well. A writer agreement can be short-form or long-form.
