The Art of Collaborative Writing

“Meetings of writers are always like the comings together of princes who rule over small, but highly independent countries, and a wrong word, a breath of rudeness, can lead to undeclared warfare; decorum is as important as affection.” ~ Peter Straub on Meeting Stephen King

If there’s any one big take-away from the fantastic meeting we had with guests Dale Long and Tobin Elliot, it’s that no matter who you’re collaborating with (a co-writer, an editor, a critique group, etc.) keeping an open mind and not letting our Noble Egos take charge can lead to true works of art and writing that challenges us.

In case you missed this amazing talk, take a peek at our highlight reel 😉


See you at our next meeting on Sunday April 9th with
