An Exaltation Of Writers

  • Saturday, 21st Nov
  • 7:45 am - 8:45 pm IST

Some best-selling and prolific authors work with a partner or a team of talented writers, who flesh out the story overseen by the maestros. This perhaps results in more ideas coming to final print, a more satisfied readership, and the honing and encouragement of younger talent. Two of India’s best selling authors discuss this new technique, its challenges and successes, and how the original author would ensure his or her imprimatur on the novels.
