twentyfour hour book



I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of writing the 24hr book with a team of writers including Kate Pullinger and a number of our students from the Indigitalisatio course Toni and I ran for Spread The Word.
The Society of Young Publishers provided a team of editors to shape our fragments, dozens contributed to our google doc open allotment, Toni filmed and documented (see www.24hrbook.ning.com, Completelynovel.com promoted and printed, and Spread The Word's Ben stayed up all night.

Using Googledocs to collaborate was eye-opening and left us all excited about the possibilities for this kind of working. Making a book in 24 hours was fun, but working with a cluster of writers for as long as it took to make something we were pleased with could be extremely rewarding.
