Annie On Writing

Looking to be involved on a Collaborative Writing Project?

Filed under: Writing Tools — Annie Evett @ 2:22 am

Writers, are you looking to work on a truly collaborative project with a dozen other passionate emerging authors?

Remember Choose your Own Adventure books?

Ever secretly thought that you could write better endings or plot lines?  Here’s your chance to..

I’m looking for 3  more writers  to immerse themselves in a highly interactive, spontaneous and exciting collaborative storytelling project. There will be three pods of writers – made up by three writers, one editor and one beta reader… and you’ll all be writing around the same stories, and characters.

Project Date:  kicks off on the 11th September through to weekend of 2nd of October.

Publishing Opportunities for this project might include

  • as a subscriber based paid online story and/ OR
  • as an ebook with hyperlinks to be read electronically and/ OR
  • traditionally printed format.

Writers commitment involves:

  1. 3 weeks ‘immersion’ with co-writers; i.e keeping in contact with the team via skype to swap ideas, discuss characters and write plot lines in true collaboration.
  2. Committing to the tight timeframe set out at the start.
  3. writing 4 (interconnecting) short stories of 500 – 700 words (max).
  4. working with their pod and editor to redraft and weave storylines during these three weeks.

Writers MUST

  • have skype
  • have email and check it every day
  • be prepared to work collaboratively with storylines.
  • be ready for a great time!

For an idea on some of the collaborative projects some of the writers whom you will be co-writing with have done; check out Chinese Whisperings.

Sound like it could be a bucket of fun?  YOU BET!!!

Who’s in for the ride?

Please email Annie on

Introduce yourself, let me know why you want to be part of the project and send me a link to a short story (500 – 1000 words)  you have written – be it published on your own blog, or elsewhere.  ( I don’t bite…)

Thanks – I look forward to chatting with you soon. ( specifics and timelines will be sent to you after our initial chat)
