This agreement is between Banana Republic Media (“Editor”) and Client/Company (“Client”) and concerns works undertaken by Banana Republic Media for editing services:
The Editor agrees to do the following on the Work:
- Copyediting for grammar, usage, spelling, punctuation
- Stylistic editing (clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, polishing language; line-by-line editing for smoothness and clarity while maintaining Client’s voice and style)
- Developmental editing: critique; suggesting alternatives, advice on suitability for placement of work for show or sale or public use.
These services include two editing stages:
EDITING – 2 Drafts
The Editor will edit, then send Work to Client for approval, Client will either accept or reject changes and answer any of the Editor’s queries, and then return the Work to the Editor, who will incorporate those changes or corrections into the Work and clean the copy of editorial markings.
Discussions of the work may occur via whatsapp or phone in addition to email.
The Editor and Client, may agree on further exchanges above this level and extra charges for these further edits.
DELIVERY – Final edit and presentation
The edit/critique of the Work is to be delivered to the Client by the Editor via email, unless otherwise arranged at a mutually agreed time.
Client agrees to pay Editor in United States dollar equivalent if outside Australia or Australian dollars for local clients for the services outlined above.
Client may also use PayPal for payments (send to bananarepublicmedia in that case), direct deposit or M Pesa.
Editor agrees not to reproduce, give, or show to anyone any material sent to her by the Client for editing purposes, unless consulting services from a third party are agreed to.
Client will reimburse Editor for any additional fees above editing the works, such as direct expenses incurred in fulfilling this Agreement, including, but not limited to, photocopying, printouts, inputting, couriers, and postage. Editor will not incur any expenses without Client’s express written permission.
No guarantees are made as to the sale-ability or marketability of the edited Work. Nor is there a guarantee that the Work will be completely error-free, though all efforts will be made to make it so. Unless a co-writing/co-Clientship arrangement is made in writing, all royalties and monies gained by the sale of the book will be the sole property of the Client.
Both parties agree that this agreement shall be interpreted and governed by the laws of the State of Queensland, Australia.
This Agreement may be amended only in writing signed (in pen or digitally agreed) by both parties.
Once the project is in process either party may terminate this Agreement in the event of material change of circumstance with 14 days’ notice sent in writing to the other party at the address(es) provided. If the Editor terminates the agreement, Client will pay the Editor for work done up to the date of termination, and Editor will refund overpayment. If the Client terminates the agreement, the Client will pay the Editor for the work completed up to the date of termination, but this amount will not be less than 50% of the estimated total for the project.
