Workshop–Owning Your Copyrights, May 5, 2018

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:

  1. How to copyright your work
  2. What can’t be copyrighted
  3. How to earn income from others’ use of your work
  4. How you can use someone else’s work
  5. 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.   One of the stories in her collection, “Life-Box”, received honorable mention in a Writer’s Digest Magazine contest.   Rosa earned two A.A. degrees in Human Resource Management and Secretarial Science at Baltimore City Community College.   She also served as secretary for the Black Writers’ Guild for 8 years.   Her expertise in copyright is based on her work experience at the Johns Hopkins University Press.    Rosa hopes to see you there!

The workshop is open to the public.  Donations ($5.00) can be made via the BWG website at www.blackwritersguild.org.  Annual membership is $35.00.  Bring a friend!
