How do you manage expectation and establish roles to make the joint project happen? How do you deal with friction when it occurs? 

Join us on the next live episode of the +Lean Into Art Cast where we'll explore how empathy and an evidence-based approach can make a collaboration not only run smoothly, but leave you with a bucket-load of newfound skills.

You can comment during the discussion via the Hangout event page.

A Writers Group for Cartoonists

http://ift.tt/1Ha8Gtd

If you're a cartoonist in the Ann Arbor area I hope you'll stop by the Mallets Creek branch of the Ann Arbor District Library Wednesday, November 19, at 6pm for the Webcomics Lab.

It's a "writers group for cartoonists" where local comics people can meet up, share some work-in-progress, and get access to some of the new Webcomics Tools in the AADL collection.

Details here: http://ift.tt/1Ha8Gtd
