Classic Magic Bakery Workshop
A Complete Look at a Fiction Writing Business
The Magic Bakery...
Stemming from a simple metaphor that your writing business, from creation to sales, can be shown clearly as a bakery.
But it is a magic bakery because in your bakery, when someone buys a slice of pie, the slice is still there, to be sold again. Same with the cakes, the doughnuts, the cookies.
The bakery remains full as long as you do not do something stupid.
In essence, this workshop combines learning copyright with understanding the nature of a business in fiction writing in a clear and understandable way.
This workshop will also give you perspective on being a freelance fiction writer. When to license a copyright, when not to, when to do movie deals and why. And even some about how. Because when you are standing inside your own magic bakery, so many things about publishing become very clear.
This workshop will help your magic bakery come alive.
This workshop is the following...
--- A business workshop.
--- A production workshop.
--- A copyright workshop.
--- A subsidiary rights workshop.
Yup, all of that and a bunch more.
A well-rounded look at a writer's publishing business that will change how you look at your writing business.
