Up For Discussion: The sound of silence

silence_thumb.jpg A new feature bringing you highlights from the mediabistro.com discussion boards. This week:
Puzzled: “Recently I was commissioned to write a magazine feature that was to be one in a series (by various writers). I met the deadline for the first draft then never heard from the company again, despite the company saying, upfront, that they would send me back an edited version and require a final draft by a certian date, which passed nearly a month ago.”
Metro Writer: “You should know the following: write for hire arrangements are awful, but you can still change the contract. Always strike out anything that doesn’t give you something in return. Example: All rights.”
