Open Book Projects Is Looking For Writers

User-generated online writing project Open Book Projects is looking for writers to participate in its crowd-sourced community writing project. The site is inviting writers to view the trailer (which we have embedded above) and write the next chapter in the story.

Writers are encouraged to take the story to the next level. The website explains more: “At the end of the most recent chapter, readers all over the world are asked to write the next episode themselves and send it to us. From all the stories received by the deadline, an in-house jury then chooses one as the official next episode. After that episode is published, readers are again called upon to continue the story.”

The first title from this community storytelling project will be published under the name, “Face.” Authors whose submissions are chosen will share in the revenue generated from eBook sales. The project comes from a collaboration between technology company Mzure and digital publisher Osutoria Publishing.
