Collaborative Fiction Writing - Who Says You Have to Go It Alone?

Fiction authors often assume the only way to write a great novel is to sit by themselves in a room, writing and reworking until the manuscript feels “finished”—all hard work, and difficult to assess when it’s done. Consider an alternative: creating a novel in collaboration with others. How does that work? How many co-authors are enough—or too many? Who makes the rules, who does the drafting, the editing, the knitting together? How do you find co-authors? How do multi-author disagreements get ironed out? And in the end, how do you publish something written by more than one author? Come learn more about this intriguing model from an agent who has worked with authors collaborating on manuscripts, and has seen up close what works, what bumps get in the way, how to resolve them—and how to succeed, and have fun in the process!
