"Writing is a lonely job," Isaac Asimov once said. "No one else is or can be involved in the matter." But he was wrong and MA|DE co-founders Jade Wallace and Mark Laliberte want to show you just how wrong he was. Join us for a workshop that offers historic and contemporary examples of two or more writers working together, as well as a toolbox of various approaches and processes for writing collaboratively. Whether you're new to collaborative writing, or a seasoned co-creator, this workshop will make you think more deeply about the possibilities of the field.  

This workshop was debuted at VerseFest Ottawa 2021.
