Each Collaborative Project is managed and run a little differently to one another. Partially to keep things fresh and interesting for team members who may be returning to ‘play’ again, and partially to cater for the specific genre the series is based upon. The mix of backgrounds and skills of individuals for each series, along with the ‘emotional buy in’ to the collaborative process determines the experience team members will ultimately have.
Our teams are made from Spinners, Weavers and Beta Readers – each an important cog within the entire machine which produces the end product.
The spinners are our incredible writers who are drawn from all over the world.
They spin the tale firstly in their own little worlds of three, then it is shared and threads pulled, spliced and interwoven.
Our weavers pull the threads of stories together, intertwining and meshing them, in order to give the reader a rich textural experience.
To call these talented people “Editors” would be a disservice to what they do.
To name them “Line Managers” would discredit the amount of work and high level thought process which is required to undertake the role.
……. and they are far more than ‘just writers”.
Our team of weavers not only edit and guide their teams of writers through the process, they also collaborate amongst themselves to ensure the threads and stories are seamless, writing chapters and links which bridge the tales.
Our awesome beta readers are drawn from a hand picked pool of established writers and editors.
They are our critical eye, unbiased opinion and our first real ‘reader’ before the stories hit the public. Our Beta Readers work closely with both editors and writers, offering their expertise with the aim of improving grammar, spelling, characterization, and the general style of stories as they progress.
Unsung heros in the writing world, this projects aim is to honour the contribution beta readers give.
