FAQ

 

What is Syllble Studios?

Syllble helps writers reach their fullest creative potential. Writers can go further by working together through collaboration and crowdsourcing. We connect writers to other writers and great editors to create content in-house and publish their dream fiction book collaboratively – a micro-novel.

By invitation only, writers can sign up and create profile pages, connect with other writers to write and publish their fiction books and have the opportunity to start their peer-to-peer production house. Are you an author? Request an invitation using this form or by emailing hello@syllble.com

What is a micro-novel?

Unique to Syllble, a micro-novel is a quality fiction book produced by multiple writers through a fast creative sprint. Micro-novelists believe in the power of collaboration and that writing fiction together creates more compelling stories. Micro-novels are often pilots and serialized to ensure a viable model for our writers to grow their audience and get paid for their work. At Syllble, we are inspiring the next great storytellers!
