10 STEPS OF COLLABORATION HAND-OUT


TO ACCOMPANY THE: COLLABORATION ASSIGNMENT

COLLABORATIVE PROCESS OVERVIEW

During the Core Curriculum season, we will be emphasizing ANMT’s recommended collaborative process.

ANMT’s recommended 10-Steps of Collaboration:

1. Conception (Blueprinting)

2. Outlining/re-outlining/greenlight

3. Rough Draft

4. Song-spotting

5. Writing songs and lyrics/Adjusting book to set up songs

6. Collaboration on presentation (repairing prosody/assembling the presentation/Formatting)

7. Submit/present First Draft

8. Response to Feedback

9. Outline current draft/outline proposed revisions/greenlight

10.Revisions

These 10 steps can be further broken down into four basic parts:

PART A - Steps 1, 2 & 3 - Blueprinting

1. Conception

2. Outlining/re-outlining/greenlight

3. Rough Draft

The process begins with the team getting together to discuss the idea and agree on a basic story-line. The bookwriter then writes up the actual outline and goes through the outline revision process until the outline receives a green light. The bookwriter then writes a rough draft of the book only, following the blueprint of the outline.

PART B: Steps 4 & 5 - Drafting

4. Song-spotting

5. Writing songs and lyrics/Adjusting book to set up songs

In the next part of the process, the team gets back together to discuss the spots in the rough draft that could be converted to songs, and the song writing team devises a plan for those songs. The songwriters then write the songs, and deliver them to the bookwriter so the bookwriter can revise the book to incorporate the songs.

PART C: Steps 6 & 7 - Presenting

6. Collaboration on presentation (repairing prosody/assembling the presentation/Formatting)

7. Submit/present First Draft

In the next part of the process, the team gets back together to review the completed material and plan any revisions or tweaks (i.e. repairing prosody) prior to presentation. The team also plans the method of presentation, and decides how the material will be prepped for presentation.

PART D: Steps 8, 9 & 10 - Revising

8. Response to Feedback

9. Outline current draft/outline proposed revisions/greenlight

10.Revisions

In the final part of the process, the team gets back together to discuss the feedback they received and make a plan for responding to the feedback. The team then completes the revisions, and repeats the steps in Part C before re-presenting the material.
