The Summer Writing Project is an annual collaboration between 1888 and JukePop that advocates writing and supports reading. This joint venture presents authors with the opportunity to craft their novellas one chapter at a time with immediate quantitative and qualitative feedback from their readers, while also broadcasting their words to an audience eager for the next great storyteller.
