The client determines the length the session he/she wants and how often they would like to meet with me.
There are no hard and fast rules. I have clients I meet with for several hours each week; one hour once a month and others twice a year, for several hours each time.
Some clients have special projects that they would like for me to help them with. I have no problem with this arrangement of special projects, limited time frame, as long as the sessions are on my calendar. I'm very flexible and as I noted before, it is all up to the client, they have complete control as to how long and how often me meet.
** PERFORMERS: If I'm working with artists who are performing (i.e. actors) and I'm critiquing your work, then, unless you have a space already secured, the hourly rate of a space will be added to your fee. I have also worked with performers/actors via SkYPE and ZOOM.
** WRITERS: I charge a different rate for reading scripts and manuscripts. This fee will be added to the session fee.
I've done group sessions of up to about twenty people.
I'm open to spending 2 hours in a group sessions.
I'll do longer sessions under a special arrangement.
Usually with group sessions the participants have their questions / dilemmas prepared ahead of time, so that I can make the best use of the time allotted.
SLIDING FEE SCALE: $25.00 to $50.00 per hour
STUDENT RATE: $18.00 per hour.
Reading Manuscript Fee: $10.00 per hour (first hour firm--pro-rated after 1 hour)
NOVELS: I average 40 pages an hour
SCRIPTS: One Act--45 mins to an hour Two Acts: 1 hour to 1-1/2 hours
The first hour is always firm.
Meaning that if you want to only meet for 30 minutes, you still must pay for one hour.
After 1 hour the time is prorated.
So if you have chosen to pay $25 an hour, and your session is 1 hour and 15 minutes, then your fee would be $31.25.
GROUP SESSION FEES: Special arrangement-- please ask!
