I want my clients to feel good about hiring me as their editor, which means feeling confident that I'm the right person for the job. I know you're a smart shopper and I respect that, so I've laid out all the fine print for you here.

I can't write a story for you if there's not one already there. In short, I can help you say what you want to say extremely well, but I can't give you something to say.
I'm also going to ask you to sign a contract if you agree to hire me. Here's what that says:
