The use of the Internet to tell stories pre-dates the World Wide Web, but most major publishing houses have been slow to grasp the power of collaborative creativity. Now Harper Collins launches Inkpop.com, a well-executed online storytelling tool for teenagers. Post your original story, chapter by chapter, get feedback from readers, make edits and revisions in public. Readers can participate by making lists of favorites and by promoting the works that they favor. It’s worth paying attention to Inkpop. I have no doubt that the publisher will find talented writers who assemble their very own online audience of fans and convert them into book readers.
