While the act of writing usually occurs in isolation, the process by which we write is often collaborative, sometimes in unacknowledged ways. What about our process changes if we think of writing as a “team sport?” This panel will address writing as a collaborative act. Panelists will speak on topics including co-authored articles and monographs, writer-editor relationships, and sharing materials in writing groups. This will be followed by a Q&A session in which attendees will have a chance to discuss their own experiences of thinking and writing collaboratively, as well as the advantages and challenges this presents.
