Penguin has revamped its Book Country site with a host of new features. The community writing site launched in 2011, and now counts more than 8,300 active members workshopping writing with other writers.
Penguin has relaunched its online writing community Book Country adding a digital book store where writers can sell the books they have published with Book Country’s self-publishing tools, among other new feature updates. Aside from the new bookstore, the latest update includes a feature that lets members direct message each other. Book Country has also updated its genre mapping tool, a way for writers to locate themselves on the genre spectrum. The genre map now has more than 60 categories, including nonfiction and young adult (YA).
