Is this what you were looking for?:

But if they hire a French writer to write something in France, no. Not only do they not have to have them be WGA, I don’t think they can. I don’t...

Re: Unpublished short story adaptation

Though I am not a lawyer, they should. If you use one of the examples off the main site, it should be more than legal and binding. Most if not all of those were done by lawyers. They are agreements...

Re: Sidejobs for a freelance writer

Take a look at something like www.UpWork.com. That might be worth at least a look. If not for you or to your like then move on, of course.

Pros are not generally sending queries. Their reps will in some fashion -- phone call or quick email -- but most pros don't need to themselves. Not saying it never happens, but they are working at a...
