EFA Boston: Permissions for Editors
Have you just taken on a manuscript full of clip art and song lyrics? Do phrases like “fair use” and “orphan work” set your heart racing and your teeth on edge? Do you fall asleep every time you try to read the US Copyright Act of 1976? Then this is the seminar for you.
In Permissions for Editors, full-time freelance editor and permissions consultant Caitlin O’Brien will cover copyright essentials that all editors need to know, as well as specific tips, tricks, and best practices for working with permissions no matter who’s securing them—the author, a permissions editor, or you! Whether you’re new to the world of perms or an old hand, this seminar will empower you to deal with copyright issues intelligently and efficiently. Questions and lively discussion are welcomed and encouraged!
Caitlin O’Brien started her publishing career a decade ago as a copyright and pictures editor for Pearson Australia’s schools division. In the intervening years, she’s managed rights teams for publishers both big and small and in 2013 expanded her skill set to include structural and line editing of all genres, fiction and nonfiction. Currently, she divides her full-time freelance workload evenly between editing and permissions consulting.
