Kickstarter has started something. Inspired by the success of the Internet-community-based startup program, Wattpad has announced a new croudfunding platform called Fan Funding, which will allow writers to tap their fanbases for publishing support for their writing projects.
Fan Funding projects function on a 30-day basis, in an all-or-nothing fashion. The funded story will run for free on the Wattpad platform.
Projects will not necessarly limited to e-books or paper books. A screenplay that is funded, for example, could result in a movie.
There is no telling how Fan Funding’s potential could go.
