In this session, we’ll share contracts best practices for creative workers. Contracts are an essential tool for any business, big or small, creative or not. Rather than discuss different types of contracts, we’ll introduce contract terms that are common to many written agreements. We’ll also share tips for reading and evaluating contracts, identifying trustworthy sample agreements, and working with a lawyer. We’ll also share resources to help attendees get started. This topic is suitable for creative workers of all disciplines and media.
