What is a Project Leader?
The Project Leader is the person who starts a WEbook project. For a single-author work, the Project Leader is the author. For books written by multiple authors, the Project Leader had the original brainstorm for the book and continues to act as an editor and moderator, guiding the project from idea to finished product. The Project Leader ensures a book’s success by recruiting writers, reviewers, and other contributors; facilitating forum discussions and brainstorming sessions; giving great feedback to project contributors; and making final decisions about how to structure the book. The Project Leader decides which submissions are included in the finished book. Last, the Project Leader decides when the book is ready to be submitted for community voting and publication. The Project Leader can hand over the mantle of project leadership to a new Project Leader at any time.
