Our next reading and open mic will take place on Monday, October 16, starting at 6:00 p.m. This month the featured reader will be Greg Evans, a member of the Tucson Unit’s Steering Committee, who will discuss various freelance issues and campaigns that the National Writers Union is currently engaged in. These include our legal campaign to force Ebony magazine to pay its freelance writers the money they are owed; the highly innovative agreement we just reached with The Nation magazine that stipulates the payment for and treatment of freelancers’ articles; our involvement in the “Freelance Isn’t Free Act” campaign; and the current state of your copyrighted material in the wake of the courts’ decision in favor of the Google Books scanning project.
The event will be held in our temporary location, the AFSCME/SEIU Union Hall at 877 S. Alvernon Way in Tucson. The building is on the east side of the street (opposite the Randolph Park golf range) and is a couple of blocks north of 22nd Street. There is ample parking. The room is on the first floor and we will have signs up to point the way.
