An anthology is a collaboration between a group of writers writing on one topic or in one genre for one book. It's essentially a book with multiple authors. There is usually a "Visionary Author" who has the idea or vision for the project.
This is a great idea for a new writer because it gives you the opportunity to get your name out there as an author without having to write an entire book on your own. Its also a great idea for someone who wants to get multiple perspectives on a topic.
As an anthology manager, I will assist you in developing the theme, purpose and goals of your project, creating your contract, recruiting writers and coaching those writers. You can also add on deep editing at a package rate. Typically, the Visionary Author will not pay my fee or any fees associated with publishing. Ask me how!!
