Check the Contract! The Basic Elements of a Publishing Agreement, with Melissa Edwards

This webinar will feature a basic rundown of the elements of a publishing contract and what they all mean. From the Grant of Rights to Royalties, Remainders to Reserved Rights, publishing contracts tend have a language all their own. This webinar will pull back the curtain on what these terms mean and whether or not they should be in your agreement.

Previously, she was a literary agent at the Aaron Priest Literary Agency, where she managed the foreign rights for a 40-year backlist. After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis and Vanderbilt Law School, Melissa began her career as a litigation attorney before transitioning into publishing. She is a tireless advocate for her clients and a constant partner during the publication process and beyond.
