What every writer needs to know about the legal netherworld of contracts and copyrights that control our business.
Most writers understandably cringe at the legal and technical jargon of book, magazine, option, and other contracts they need to sell their work. And copyrights can be downright scary. Ken Ackerman has navigated these waters often in his long career with multiple books and publishers, with all the related legal twists and turns. In this workshop he’ll give a primer on what writers need to know, in simple, understandable terms, about selling and securing their work.
