Let's Talk About... Collaborative Writing
Snack Syndicate (Andrew Brooks and Astrid Lorange), hosted by Caitlin McGregor
Summary:The idea of the writer as a solitary genius is increasingly recognised as a falsehood, and many contemporary writers are keen to embrace the possibilities, both creative and political, of working with and in relation to one another. Andrew Brooks and Astrid Lorange have published and produced work as independent writers, as Snack Syndicate and with other collaborators. In this session, they discuss methods and rationales for writing collaboratively and answer questions from the audience and our moderator.
This seminar will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.
