I want to draft a contract to work on spec.

I am a freelance video editor and I am being asked to work on spec (as in do the work and the producers will pay for my work if they like it). I want to draft some sort of contract outlining what I am doing, and their use of my work if they do like it, but I don't know exactly what I should include in a contract like this. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I wrote a short humorous topical piece that I would like to get published online. It was in the right format (a short list) for McSweeney's, but they rejected it. What other well-read online humor sites accept outside submissions? I am not looking for payment, just to get it published.
