SF Peninsula (Hybrid): Writing Fiction with a Partner

Writing Fiction with a Partner
Tracy Dobmeier and Wendy Katzman have been great friends for nearly 25 years. Their debut novel, Girls with Bright Futures, is a dark, suspenseful journey into the cutthroat world of college admissions. Earning starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly and Library Journal, it’s currently in development as a limited TV series with Discovery+. Tracy and Wendy live in Seattle and between them they have two husbands, four kids (three of whom have survived the college admissions process without a single parent landing in jail), two dogs, and a cat. Connect with Tracy and Wendy on Instagram at @katzndobs.
Most people assume Girls with Bright Futures (Feb 2, 2021) was inspired by the notorious Operation Varsity Blues scandal, but the real story is far more compelling. Tracy and Wendy will take you behind the scenes as they share the unlikely midlife journey that led them from the abyss of family health crises to a co-authored, published novel about college admissions mania. If you’ve ever considered a writing partnership or thought the idea was insane, but were curious about how people actually pull off co-writing and remain friends, join us as we’ll be sharing our thoughts and advice on successful writing relationships.
Speakers: Tracy Dobmeier and Wendy Katzman: They pulled off co-writing while remaining friends. They’ll reveal how.
