Monthly Meeting: Author-Agent Jacqui Lipton Discusses Legal Issues – NOW ONLINE

Date(s) - 08/08/2020
10:00 am - 11:00 am


Are you curious about how copyright, defamation or contract law might impact your work as an author or illustrator? Do you believe that learning a little law could actually be fun?

Come and join Jacqui Lipton and the Austin SCBWI team for a morning of legal illumination for creative artists with the occasional pop quiz thrown in. Local authors Salima Alikhan and PJ (Tricia) Hoover will sit on a panel with Jacqui and share questions and stories about how law affects creatives in their daily lives, and how to avoid common legal pitfalls. Signed copies of Jacqui’s new book,¬†Law & Authors: A Legal Handbook for Writers¬†will also be available for purchase.

The monthly meeting will be immediately followed by an Open Critique Group for SCBWI members.
