Articles on: Freelancers: How does Reedsy work?

How do I cancel a collaboration without charging the author?

We understand that life happens and sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances, you or your client cannot proceed together. If your client is outside of the free cancellation window, but you’d like to help them cancel with no late fee (for example, a family or medical emergency is preventing them from proceeding) please follow these steps.

Submit an amendment that moves the start, completion and all payment dates at least 2 months from now.

Then, contact the author directly, and double-check that they accept the amendment.

Finally, ask your author to cancel from their side. They will now be within the free cancellation period. You can find more about our cancellation policy here.
