We also learned the ONE word in a publishing contract that can cost you literally thousands of dollars. Watch this class to find out what that word is.

We were joined by special guest Sara Payne, an attorney in the entertainment industry. In the webinar she deconstructed and analyzed a standard publishing contract. It was highly informative, even for Will, Jake, and Lee, who have been dealing with contracts their entire careers.
