“Crowdwriting” – Think About it

By on April 17, 2013 . Category Inside Widbook

What sounds most clever to you: A single author writing ten chapters about ten different things; or ten different authors writing one chapter each about the subject of the domain?

“Crowdsomething” is all over our life today; a collective of soliciting contributions taking place, and everyone can collaborate adding something to it.

We are living in a time where people have the option to share experiences and ideas, producing alone may sound better at first, but in fact, we just have knowledge of some specific subjects or areas in life.

That’s the essence on Widbook – a platform for collaborative writing. When a book is written in a collaborative way the result is a more oxygenated and diversified work, ready to catch people’s attention and to win more fans.

Let’s talk about “How it works” 

First, it’s important to know the difference between being a collaborator and a co-author when it comes to writing.

A collaborator gives an opinion in someone else’s work, turning the comment something much more personal. And, a co-author helps to write the book other authors are writing.

On Widbook you can do both! Check out bellow how it can be made on the platform.

A Collaborator 

You can take a look at the collaboration section, and find a book that accepts collaborations. How to do that? Just by clicking on Collaboration on the top menu; or if you are reading a book, just click on the Send Collaboration button.

Or, if you want to make your book available for collaboration, just change the Collaboration option on the Book Settings page.

A Co–Author

You’ll need an invitation from another author to become a co-author of his work.

If you want to invite an author to become a co-author of your work, just send the invitation from your Book Settings page.

And let us know if you have any doubt when using Widbook. Enjoy!
