SAO PAULO, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Who has never thought of being a writer or telling their life story in a book?  The digital platform Widbook (www.widbook.com) is bringing this dream to life.  Developed by a group of young people, this free online platform enables users to write, read and share. 

The main idea is to encourage encounters between readers and writers online, allowing authors to share their writings with users in the same network. The latter, in turn, can contribute their ideas and opinions, to create a work of joint authorship with collaborative content. Once a user logs in to the platform, he or she can insert content free of charge, and then invite friends and/or authors from different countries to collaborate in the final version of this digital narrative.  

This new model of online interaction allows for a differentiated use of the already familiar digital books. Users can select pages with tags, going through debate chat rooms, blogs and comments.  "We would like to think not only of the reader, but also of the author.  A lot of people have a talent for writing and no opportunity to share it," explains Flavio Aguiar, CEO and founder of Widbook.

The young Argentine writer Eva Levin, for example, has discovered through this platform a way to express her passion and disseminate her work. Her book "Aliya Journey – A Behind the Scenes Story" has as its inspiration experiences she has had in all the countries and cultures she has lived in over the course of her life.  The story begins when she moves from Argentina to Israel, and discovers there her talent and her love for literature.

In contrast to a portal that allows only the publication of people's writings, Widbook makes it possible for people, alone or in a group, to write their own books that can make use of resources such as photos, videos and animations, or send in collaborations on the work of other authors. "We are offering human relationships, making collaborative writing possible.  We are a network of encounters," notes Aguiar.
