Not every talented writer is suited to life as a solitary scribe. In this interactive workshop, the four authors who are Alice Campion will share their secrets for collaborative success. You will work in teams and learn how to create seamless prose that speaks with one voice. You will also learn how to share ideas, give feedback and manage your work without coming to blows. The Alices will arm you with techniques and strategies they developed while collaboratively writing two novels, including how to avoid pitfalls and embrace the confidence and success that writing genre fiction together can offer.

On receipt of booking, we will ask you to confirm any special requirements, including access needs. While not all rooms in Science House are fully accessible, we are committed to ensuring that all participants can attend all workshops.

With thanks to NYU Sydney.
