Licensed writing is any sort of writing that involves a copyrighted property, where the author is given permission (a license) to use that property. This includes fiction based around media franchises such as Star Wars, Doctor Who or Warhammer, and official non-fiction books and magazines tied in to these properties. But it also includes fiction and non‐fiction based around real‐life organization such as sports leagues or the Royal Flying Doctor Service. What does it take to write material like this, and how does one go about even getting a license?

You will learn:

• The different types of licensed writing.

• Why unlicensed and unofficial writing around licensed properties exists.

• The do’s and don’ts of licensed writing.

• How the process of writing licensed material differs from ordinary writing.

• How to get licensed
