There are several different names for interactive writing to include joint writing, collaborative writing, and (of course) interactive writing. A good "official" description of interactive writing can be found on Benjamin Mako's website:
"1. two or more people jointly composing the complete text of a document; 2. two or more people contributing components to a document; 3. one or more person modifying, by editing and/or reviewing, the document of one or more persons; and 4. one person working interactively with one or more person and drafting a document based on the ideas of the person or persons. ([Farkas1991] p. 14) "
To put it simply, interactive writing is when more than one person (sometimes as many as 10 or more!) assists in one way or another with the creative writing process. This does not include a single author's work being edited afterwards, a different author taking a single author's work and writing a sequel or parody, or any other various other cooperation involving a single author's work. These all have the same thing in common: they involve a SINGLE AUTHOR'S work. A piece generated by interactive writing is developed by MULTIPLE AUTHORS, fiction or otherwise.
What are some things each of you have done that could be considered interactive writing?
