I offer consulting on a range of legal and business issues affecting the life and work of authors and creative artists, including reviews of publishing and agent contracts, concerns about intellectual property issues, as well as privacy and defamation concerns. I have experience both in trade publishing as well as academic/educational publishing contracts.
I offer short courses for organizations and institutions that promote writing and other creative pursuits on various aspects of the creative enterprise including business/legal issues and other issues like fiction writing, nonfiction proposals, the editorial process, revising work for submission etc.
I am always happy to provide one-off workshops (virtually or in-person subject to availability) on aspects of the publishing industry and other challenges facing creative artists. I’ve provided workshops in the past to a variety of organizations and institutions focused on writing and other creative enterprises both on legal and business issues as well as on craft issues.
