why we charge what we do
There's not a standard rate of pay for dramaturgy in England.
We've thought long and hard about how much to charge, balancing affordability for writers with the time it takes to offer a high standard of engagement with a script.
Reading, considering and noting a play, then planning and holding a meeting about it, is rarely less than a full day's work. Our standard fee reflects that.
Writing an additional summary document usually takes around 2hrs.
