Writing is often considered a solo sport, but these writing partners prove that sometimes your best work is done as a team. Panelist duos will talk about their process for collaborative writing, including sharing writing duties, reconciling creative differences, and working as a team to develop a shared voice and vision for your story.

Must have an AFF Producers or Conference Badge to attend.
