Is it necessary to be a "lonely artist?"
Drawing on the creative collaboration of Lewis and Tolkien, this discussion will help writers understand how essential the Inklings were to the work each of its members did, and expand the notion of what counts as collaboration. We will explore the necessary characteristics of a successful creative dyad, five different types of creative small groups, and some very specific directions for how to build a creative small group and make sure it thrives.
This event will be open to Anselm patrons and member artists only. Learn how to become a member of the Anselm Society!
