Writing for Permissions book
This chapter helps a writer to learn: (1) why he/she needs permission and how to get it; (2) sample request letters; and (3) how to assemble a permissions file. It presents some sample documentation and letters including model permissions letter and release form. When writing for permission, all the necessary information about what the writer wishes to reprint or quote should be included. The original letter and a copy should be sent to the publisher from whom the permission is being requested for. Another copy can be kept for the permissions file. After the permission is received, it should be checked for any unanticipated or undesirable restrictions.
