I happen to like Crisps and "Brown Betty's" more than cobblers. 
I like the crunchy topping rather than the dough toppings.  So I really have no tips for you other than follow the recipe. 
I do have a cookbook from Cook's Country and there is a recipe for a Blueberry Grunt here is their recipe. 
8 Cups fresh Blueberries
1/2 Cup sugar
2 Tb water
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 Tb lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cornstarch
3/4 Cup buttermilk
6 Tb butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 Cups flour
1/2 Cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
For the filling Cook 4 cups of the blueberries, sugar, water, lemon zest and cinnamon in a Dutch oven over medium heat stirring occasionally until the mixture is thick and jam like, 10 to 12 minutes.  
Whisk the lemon juice and cornstarch together in a small bowl then stir into the berries and cook until heated through about 1 minute. Add the rest of the berries. 
Remove pot from heat, cover and keep warm. 

Topping Combine buttermilk, butter, and vanilla in a measuring cup.  Whisk the flour, 6 Tb of the sugar the baking powder, baking soda and salt  in a bowl.  
Slowly stir in the buttermilk mixture until a dough forms. 

Using a small ice cream scoop or 2 spoons scoop golf ball size dumplings on top of the warm berry mixture (you should have 14 dumplings) Wrap the lid of the Dutch oven with a clean towel (keep the towel away from the heat source) Cover the pot. 
Simmer gently until the dumplings have doubled in size and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 16 to 22 minutes. 
Take the remaining 2 Tb sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the dumplings.  Serve immediately. 

I did see this on one of the shows and it did look very good...good enough that I did think about making it and now that I have the recipe out I just might!

I would guess this would work with any combination of berries you may not have to do the initial stovetop cooking as long as many berries are much more tender or fragile but they do have to cook to the proper consistency.
