Special Speaker Event

Writers in Collaboration

Writing alone is tough enough -- so, is writing with a partner easier, or does it create a whole new set of problems? Three teams of authors will explore the process of writing in collaboration with a partner. This diverse and informative panel will also discuss their methodology and experiences, as well as the trials, tribulations and rewards. Afterwards, they will also answer questions from the audience and autograph their work.

Doug Warr and Aaron Mason speak at GLAWS

Aaron Mason & Doug Warr are two writers based out of Studio City, California. Aaron and Doug have been friends for many years, and honed their writing skills on screenplays and comic books. When they decided to venture into novel writing they wanted to develop a special project that set them apart. “The Baffelgagging Blundernagging Brothers in Curse of the Bog Frog” is that project.

There are other adventures in the BBB series to come, as well as other sci-fi/fantasy novels and projects in various stages of development.

The Kollin brothers have the distinction of being the only sibling collaborative science fiction writers today and their most frequently asked question is, “How on earth do you manage to work together with minimal loss of blood?”
