Are you a writer or do you represent writers? Join us and bring yourself up to date on the changes in law in the dramatically altered world of publishing and the distribution of the written word. This informative program will cover authorship, protecting books as property, obtaining and negotiating publishing deals.

The following will be addressed:

• Academic books: How you reach out to a publisher, the proposal process, and why you never really get paid.

• Alternative ways to grow your business via ghost writers for content on websites and blogs.
