    White Rabbit, Red Rabbit
    Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour declined to serve in his country’s armed forces, in return the Iranian government denied Mr. Soleimanpour’s request for a passport. Unable to leave Iran, he has instead sent a script to SFIAF to have other people read it for him. Soleimanpour’s arresting and allegorical work, White Rabbit, Red Rabbit, dissects the experience of a whole generation in a wild, utterly original play. Soleimanpour turns his isolation to his own advantage with the play (written in English) which requires no director, no set, and a different actor for every performance. Per Mr. Soleimanpour’s instruction, the script of White Rabbit, Red Rabbit will be opened in front of the audience and performed unrehearsed by a different actor each night.

    Reading In and Between the Lines of a Publishing Agreement

    With Francine Ward, Esq.

    Imagine this, you’ve done the work and now you are ready to publish your first book. Where do you begin? How do you find an agent? How do you secure a publisher? And what do you do when you get one?  Let’s say you find a publisher and they give you that all important book contract. Do you understand it? What should you look out for? Are some clauses more important than others? Not all contracts are created equal, and, not all lawyers have experience negotiating book contracts.  And, few have actually been published by a major NY publisher. But Francine Ward has that firsthand experience, both as a published author and as a lawyer, who negotiates deals.  In this highly informative session, intellectual property attorney and twice published author Francine Ward will share with you tips and strategies on getting and navigating the publishing deal.

    Attendees will learn:

    • Strategies for getting a book deal;
    • Four (4) things they must do—like it or not;
    • The most important book contract clauses (and it’s not the advance or royalty section);
    • And so much more!

    If you are interested in getting published, this may be the most important seminar you ever attend.

    Francine Ward is a 1989 graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, and is known for her stellar reputation as an upstanding Attorney. She brings expertise as a business and intellectual property attorney with a focus on copyrights, trademarks, publishing, social media, entertainment, and business law.  But wait, there’s more! In 2003, Random House paid Francine $160,000 to write her first book, Esteemable Acts: 10 Actions for Building Real Self Esteem.  She was a first time author, she was not a celebrity, and yet, they paid her a ton of money to write her book. Why?  You will learn the answer when you join her on June 27, 2016 for the seminar.
