8J: Two Brains Are Better: How to Write Collaboratively
Limited Capacity seats available

George Orwell once said that writing a book is a “horrible, exhausting struggle.” But it doesn’t have to be—if you write it with a friend. More and more writers are discovering that they can double their page count, find endless new ideas and stretch their capabilities by working together. It’s also a great way to discover your own writing process while observing someone else’s. In this session, we will talk about successful collaborations, including Caroline/Charles Todd, and Guillermo del Toro/Chuck Hogan. We will outline what makes for a successful partnership and share from our own experience how to co-author fiction without blowing up a friendship.
