1. What about co-authoring?
Each month, MethodSpace focuses on a particular theme, and collaboration was featured in December of 2018. These posts include material on co-authoring and collaborative writing. Find the series here

Also see a recent post: Collaborative Writing: Ten Top Tips by Helen Kara. Fun fact: I just completed a co-authored book with Helen, and we’re still friends!
