Evelyn, thanks for letting me know. I’ll pass it on to the Jewish Book Council, the conference sponsor who is managing the registration.
I am trying to launch a group of potential products (i.e., comic web sites for a friend, using my art and writing styles, character or story licensing for comic enterprise based on unpublished issue text) relating to comic-book characters I created for the comic-book series, The Amazin Warriors, who in current issue “Collide Against the Genesis Goons in MUSIC in COMA” . . . (a PG-17 site, for sure!) http://www.comic-strip.org has links to product pages showing characters and some
text from actual, unpublished issue, with 2004 Copyright. Can someone help me
direct my queries? I don’t know what I need first. Miriam Bensimon aka M. I. Stone,
