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
