         poems or other works – hereinafter referred to as the Work – in the
         2010 anthology entitled “Howl At The Moon” to be published by
         the High Desert Branch of the California Writers Club, hereinafter
         referred to as the Publisher.
      2. The use of the Work by the publisher entails the assignment of
         First North American Rights for publication in the English language
         in North America. ALL rights revert to the author after publication.
      3. The author grants to the Publisher the right to archive the Work in
         an online version of the anthology.
      4. The author agrees to name The High Desert Branch of the
         California Writers Club as first publisher, if and when the work is
         republished in printed or digital form.
      5. For the rights granted to the Publisher in 1 (a,b) the Author will be
         able to purchase copies of the anthology at the wholesale price to
         be determined by the High Desert Branch of the California Writers
         Club.
      6. The author represents and warrants: 1) that he/she is the sole
         author of the Work; 2) that the Work is original; 3) that no one has
         reserved the rights granted in this agreement. The author also
         represents, to the best of his/her knowledge, that the Work does
         not contain any libelous material.
      7. The author agrees not to publish or permit others to publish this
         Work in any form prior to its publication and appearance in the
         above named anthology and no printed form for 90 days following
         publication.
