An ongoing series this spring and summer, Money Matters: The Road to Financial Literacy is dedicated explicitly to financial matters as they concern book authors, journalists, and freelance writers. Each session will cover a topic such as understanding royalty statements, forming entities, managing literary estates, freelancer finances, alternative sources of income, what authors can expect to pay for during a book release, and more.

Panel discussions will take place via Zoom and include time for a Q&A. All writers are encouraged to attend, especially new authors looking to learn more about the business of writing and publishing.
