Upcoming, we have a LIVE Workshop that we’ll be hosting through The Music Publishing Academy that will teach you how to get started in publishing AND how to secure placements.

The Workshop will be taught by award-winning artist, Renita Holyfield, M.B.A. and former Director of Copyright for BMG, Steven Cauchi. Registration is FREE and will be hosted online so you can attend from anywhere in the world. Collectively, Holyfield & Cauchi have helped songwriters and publishers collect millions in publishing royalties across the globe.
