Atwood and Alderman collaborate on Zombie series for Wattpad
Most of you know Margaret Atwood has embraced the online writing community, offering to judge a poetry contest at Wattpad and in general, just be an ambassador on e-writing at large. Glad to see she continues to keep her affiliation with Wattpad open as she continues to also serialize with Byliner (see: http://www.mediabistro.com/galleycat/margaret-atwood-joe-mcginniss-publish-serialized-fiction-on-byliner_b56846).
However, I have to say that paidcontent.org keeps mucking up every article on serials. Wattpad has been serializing fiction already through the efforts of amateur and indy authors for a LONG time. (http://paidcontent.org/2012/10/23/wattpad-tries-serial-fiction-with-help-from-margaret-atwood/)
