On Saturday, May 5, 2018, 1-3 p.m., Rosa L. Griffin will be conducting a workshop for the Black Writers’ Guild of Maryland entitled “Owning Your Copyrights”. The workshop will be held at the Enoch Pratt Library, 4330 Edmondson Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21229.
Understanding copyright law can be hair raising. Join us for an informative workshop for writers which will help guide you through the muddy waters of what you can and can’t use for your writing projects and much more!
You will learn:
- How to copyright your work
- What can’t be copyrighted
- How to earn income from others’ use of your work
- How you can use someone else’s work
- How to copyright your work in other forms
Rosa L. Griffin is the author of an adult fictional short story collection entitled Attraction: Sexy Tales of the Good, Bad, and Ugly Relationships.

Andre A. Melton has a sports show on WEAA 88.9 FM. He was present when Odessa Rose spoke with gratitude about her thanks to the many Black Writers’ Guild of Maryland’s members who came to the premiere of her movie, Water in a Broken Glass, at the Senator on March 1, 2018.
Andre says that he tries to put at least one item of a general nature in with the sports on each show. So, listen up—you don’t know what he may be talking about next.
