About Writer Hop

Overview:

Welcome to Writer Hop, the world’s leading writing collaboration Web site. Whether you are here to write for fun, for practice, to overcome writer’s block, to write something for profit or perhaps work on a school essay or co-write lyrics or a poem or simply to read, Writer Hop is for you!

The process at Writer Hop is simple. After registering a free account, you can click on “Start Writing” or join collaborate with writers on writing already in progress. The writer who begins each piece of writing, regardless of category or genre, is referred to as the “Primary Author” (or PA). Other writers may suggest the next portion of a Primary Author’s title. They are known as the “Contributing Author” (or CA). The Primary Author is in complete control of his/her writing and can choose to accept from all the writing suggestions by Contributing Authors which will be the next part of their writing. Or a Primary Author can simply keep opting to use their own writing as the next part of their story/writing or even accept a contribution and then edit it.

If a Primary Author accepts a contribution/suggestion by a Contributing Author as the next portion of the writing, the Contributing Author receives 3 “Author Points”. Even if this contribution is later edited by the Primary Author, the CA will retain the 3 points and the attribution/byline for that part of the story. If a Primary Author copies and pastes the writing elsewhere, the CA may or may not receive credit elsewhere at the discretion of the PA. On Writer Hop however, your contributions are always recognized and rewarded.
