Retain Your Rights, Even in the Academy.

How academic authors can help themselves and the cause of author's rights by retaining their copyright, and demanding a royalty for the use of their work. The days of truly not-for-profit educational publishing are over, so why are you gifting your work to the academy?

Plus, a quick trip to Halifax and the intro to this year's Margaret Laurence Memorial Lecture. Here's that lecture for you enjoyment: https://soundcloud.com/writerstrust/author-olive-senior-on-the-writing-life-margaret-laurence-lecture-2019

And here is Dr. Aileen Fyfe's blog post about academic publishing: https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/impactofsocialsciences/2019/06/03/what-the-history-of-copyright-in-academic-publishing-tells-us-about-open-research/

I want to thank my son, Fred Degen, for his help in editing and preparing this episode.
