About kill fees
Because The Good Life generally hires only experienced writers and will be reviewing writing samples before making an assignment, it is rarely necessary to kill a story. However, in the event a feature does not seem suitable even after editing or rewriting, a kill fee of 25 percent of the assignment fee (up to a maximum kill fee of $100 ) will be paid on the 15th of the month in which the story was originally scheduled for publication.
