Welcome to OpenBookProjects!

We see the internet as a worldwide space where anyone and everyone are able to give their creativity free reign. Every user can be both consumer and creator of content.

We found this idea so exciting that we took it as basis for developing our OpenBookProjects. One person begins a story with an extreme situation, without stipulating what happens next. Instead, we want the readers themselves to spring into action and spin the tale further. At the end of every chapter, readers are invited to write their own version of what happened next and thus develop an ongoing (perhaps never-ending) story that continually takes new twists and turns.

How does OpenBookProjects work?

OpenBookProjects is a collection of individual episodes that can be strung together seamlessly to form a coherent story – similar to a TV series like Dallas.

Each new episode is available as an eBook.

At the end of the most recent chapter, readers all over the world are asked to write the next episode themselves and send it to us. From all the stories received by the deadline, an in-house jury then chooses one as the official next episode. After that episode is published, readers are again called upon to continue the story.

Have fun and be part of it!
