A new way for agents and aspiring writers to interact ?

I have a vision for this group.

100 really good undiscovered writers.

All with their query letters, outlines, bios, complete works in process posted on a private wiki.

Access to the wiki is given to their editors, friends, fellow writers.

AND selected literary agents.

The literary agents could swoop down whenever they wanted to scroll through the works of the writers.

Fewer e-queries piling up in the agents boxes. Less "white noise" on the part of writers, spending time composing, sending, waiting for agent responses.

Any ideas out there on procedures for structuring our group that way ?

And any agents have ideas on whether this would be of interest to them ?

Subscribe to The Blogosphere Writers Group Mailing List

If you are interested in becoming a member of The Blogosphere Writers Group, Click here to subscribe to our mailing list.

The 24/7 Writers Group

If you are a writer, you are probably a member of a writers group that meets once a month or so. You may want to get more frequent comments on your work, but the logistics of convening all the members of your group on a more regular basis make that impossible.

Enter the Blogosphere Writers Group.

Here's how it works.

Just go to WriterWiki, a wiki for writers, and create an account. Start posting your work. Other members of the Blogosphere Writers Group will edit what you post. Since the wiki has the capability to show the history of any article, and can revert to previous posts, you can always reject, change, or edit any posts.

WriterWiki is currently a public wiki, without user controls, but as the membership in our group increases, we will introduce user controls.

Or, if you prefer, we can set up your own wiki, completely controlled by you.
