Authors Guild Releases Model Book Contracts to the General Public to Help Writers and Translators When Negotiating with Trade Publishers

While previously these model contracts were reserved for members of the Authors Guild, this month the Authors Guild has made two model contracts with commentary available to the general public - one, to help guide writers when negotiating with trade publishers, and the other a model translation contract to help translators hired to translate a work in another language into English.

Here's a screen shot of one section of the Authors Guild's "Model Trade Book Contract." The section in green is commentary that helps contextualize and explain the contractual language.

These are great resources for authors and translators! 

Illustrate, Translate, and Write On,

P.S. My thanks to editor and coach Emma Dryden for posting about this on LinkedIn, which is where I learned about it.
