Writing books can be a lonely process. To help make it more collaborative and help writers showcase their work and get feedback, Widbook came along.

The site aims to be like YouTube for books. Writers can upload and share their work and solicit feedback from readers and other authors. Publishers can use the site to scout for new talent and read manuscripts. Using the site is totally free.

The site is hoping to change the process of collaboration. For instance, it makes it easy to co-write books with other members. Here is more from the site: “Widbook is an intelligent platform where new authors and readers find the opportunity to create, explore and collaborate with people their best digital content worldwide.”

Since  the site launched last year, the site has more than 30,000 members and has published more than 1,500 books. The company has a presence in more than 150 countries but the majority of its members are in the U.S.
