Ethics for Writers – with Anne Dalton
It’s a great idea, but is it ethical to use it? Is it legal? What’s the difference between ethical decisions and legal decisions? As an author, how can you tell? How much permission do you need from another author? Join Anne and Chrissy Jackson for a practical, fun discussion about the ethics and legalities of writing.
Attendees will learn:
- When it’s ethical to use someone else’s ideas or words.
- When it’s legal to borrow someone else’s concepts.
- How to actively participate in a Critique Group and still write stories ethically and legally.
Pick your topic and Chrissy will be happy to talk with you about it.
