CONTRACTS, COPYRIGHTS AND TAXES, OH MY! – What writers need to know about business

You pitched the book proposal–now the agent or publisher wants the manuscript. But what’s all this about contracts, copyright, invoices, and quarterlies? If it’s on the Internet, I can use it, right? Am I a business or a hobby? Should I incorporate? Why do I need social media, a website, and public speaking engagements when I only crave solitude and time to write? And why do I want a brand if I don’t punch cows?

Successful writers have split personalities. The creative side crafts great works. The other side takes care of business. Learn how to take care of business so you can continue to write the good stuff.

This is an intermediate/advanced level course for writers who have some publishing credits and are looking to prepare themselves to take their writing from being a hobby to being a business. Attendees will gain practical information about creating a writing life, selling their work and treating writing as a business.

Attendees will leave with a thorough handout. This meeting will take place online on November 2nd from 7:00 to 8:30.
