Writing with a Collaborator

This week on Hide and Create, Joshua Essoe, Jordan Ellinger, Moses Siregar and special guest Debbie Viguie talk about writing with a collaborator.

Writing with a collaborator, with a partner, can be a tremendously satisfying and rewarding process. If you do, you need to have really clear lines of communication. Set up all the boundaries and the responsibilities beforehand and make sure that everyone is crystal clear on them.

If you’re going to do it, no matter how friendly you feel toward your co-author, no matter how much you trust one another, I would urge you to put everything in writing so that if for some reason a dispute does arise, all you have to do is reference the contract, and the problem will hopefully be resolved. 

One thought on “Writing with a Collaborator

  1. Hi… My name is Dennis Santo, and I love to write. I have written Stage Plays, Novels to be, Screen Plays, and Children’s Books. I don’t read much, I just write. BUT, I have a problem… I’m NOT a writer… In the sense that I think I could never put my work together to be good enough to Publish. With the help of editors, I have published a few children’s books and a short story, but I don’t know what to do with my BIG stuff. I’m just checking to possibly see if anyone can lead me to a GOOD collaborator, or someone who can help? I’m open to any ideas. Thanks for your time.
