What you don’t know about legal issues of libel, slander and copyright could hurt, haunt, or cost you. As a writer, photographer, or visual artist, how do you protect your work and avoid infringing on other’s rights and privacy? What are your responsibilities as a writer of fiction, non-fiction, or memoir? What can and can’t you quote? These and other issues will be addressed in a packed, informative program. While the speaker can’t address individual cases, you’ll learn how to protect yourself and when you might need professional support.
Join the Knoxville Writers’ Guild on October 7 at 7 p.m. for our monthly program.
