COLLABORATION AGREEMENT SOLELY BETWEEN WRITERS
This model should be used when all of the participants in the devised process are writers (alternatively, “ensemble members”).

COLLABORATION AGREEMENT BETWEEN WRITERS AND NON-WRITERS
This model represents a process in which one or more writer(s) (alternatively, principal devisors, delegates, or lead writers) collaborate with one or more non-writers to create a new work.

PRELIMINARY AGREEMENT TO PARTICIPATE
This model agreement should be used when a group of individuals (alternatively, “creators”) begins a collaborative process without first knowing who the authors will be.

PRODUCTION AGREEMENT
This agreement can be used when it comes time to present the devised work before a live audience. It grants the rights of production to a producer/production company, ensures proper payment to the author, protects authorial rights, and includes optional sections on billing, subsidiary rights and future options.
