DC Freelancers Union SPARK: How Contracts Can Protect Your Work


Welcome to Freelancers Union SPARK!

We host meetups for freelancers by freelancers: we invite you to bring your expertise, questions, and elevator pitches to the table to the workshop and discuss. 

Join us on the first Wednesday of every month (and on Facebook in between!) to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, get inspired, and talk about stuff like...


Contracts are essential for protecting your work as a freelancer. A good contract helps you and your client define the work, set expectations, and avoid misunderstandings. This month's SPARK will offer tips for freelance-friendly contracts, and how to stay protected: 

  • Getting paid on time
  • Copyright and ownership
  • Protecting against common pitfalls 

And we'll introduce you to the free contract creator you need to put it all in writing.

There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before.

Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive.
