June Roundtable

June’s Writer’s Roundtable is set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 6 at the Paseo Verde Library’s Coffee Press cafe.

This month’s lead-off topic is “Contracts, Contracts, Contracts! (and Legal Terms Every Writer Should Ask About)”

WSN President Eric James Miller will discuss the different types of contracts and legal terms every working writer should be familiar with. This discussion promises to be informative, but informal. Everyone will have the chance to share their experiences and ask questions about the business aspects of being a working writer.  As always, the conversation is likely to morph and evolve in different directions depending on what everyone brings to the table with their cup of joe, latte, or tea.


Free for WSN members, $5 for guests.

(if you have a subject you’d like to suggest for an upcoming Roundtable, please send it to nevadawriters (at) gmail (dot) com with the Subject “Roundtable Topic”)
