You're Dead Now What - Estate Planning for Writers

Session #156 – “Estate Planning for Writers” with author Matt Buchman

As writers, we struggle to get our work written, sold, and produced our whole careers. What we don’t hardly ever think about is, what happens after we’re gone? Our writing doesn’t stop being valuable, but who is going to take over managing it and, hopefully, continue to reap the benefits of our creativity for the length of our copyright? We discuss this with best-selling novelists Matt Buchman, writer of “Estate Planning for Writers” based on his own experiences. SHOW NOTES:Matt Buchman’s Website: http://www.mlbuchman.com
