On Saturday, May 5, 2018, 1-3 p.m., Rosa L. Griffin conducted a workshop for the Black Writers’ Guild of Maryland entitled “Owning Your Copyrights”. The workshop was held at the Enoch Pratt Library, 4330 Edmondson Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21229.
Understanding copyright law can be frustrating. Thanks for joining us for an informative workshop for writers which attempted to guide participants through the muddy waters of what can and can’t be used in your writing projects and much more!
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 immediate past secretary for the Black Writers’ Guild of Maryland for the past 8 years.
Her expertise in copyright is based on her work experience at the Johns Hopkins University Press and the Library of Congress website, https://www.copyright.gov.
Rosa L. Griffin is available to conduct a workshop for you for a negotiated fee.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Rosa L. Griffin participated in a book signing and author panel at 4 p.m. during the Liberty Senior Center’s Book Club Annual Extravaganza which was held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. She discussed her writing life and her book of short stories, Attraction: Sexy Tales of Good, Bad, and Ugly Relationships. You missed some fascinating stories told by several authors if you missed this event.
The Center is located at 3525 Resource Drive off of Liberty Road, Randallstown, MD 21133, 410-887-0780. (I look forward to participating again.)
