Author Contracts

When publishers agree to publish your work, they ask you to sign an author contract. While these contracts may seem confusing, we will help you understand their provisions of those contracts and ensure that you can use your work in the ways you want down the road. This workshop will discuss common author contract provisions, especially as they relate to copyright and the rights you may retain after signing.

RSVP is required for this workshop (in-person and online).
