What's the best product to help with creating and editing content?

Thinking about products like Wonder but where there's an editorial edge that helps to create the basis for a piece of content. Mostly to be used when crafting blog posts, Medium posts, email newsletters, etc... Looking for a network of content creators who can help to write/edit as well, possibly.

    GitHub for writing

    Draft is a fantastic tool for collaboration. Share your writing privately with a friend and they can directly suggest edits which appear as diffs (you can visualize what they removed or added as you do in GitHub). It's helped me become a better writer. You can also pay professional copy editors to review your writing, directly from the web app.

    My favorite writing tool

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for... but Scrivener is great for research/composing. I've never used it for sharing content... but I really like it for longer projects.

    Every time I try and move away from this, I get pulled back in. I have features that I'd love baked in, and a cleaner interface/UX I'd love to see. But a few things get me back here. You mentioned a "network" of creators, and everyone I know has a Google account. So friction is removed there. There's versioning and commenting. Everything else, despite how much I want it, becomes secondary when I'm working with others.

    Collaborate, schedule & seed your articles omnichannel

    Kevin GilbertOwner, Koinology · Written
    Based on your description, I think this will fit the bill perfectly for you, if you're still looking. It has a place to include an editorial brief for each story. It is fully collaborative, allowing you to invite multiple users/collaborators and give each one a different role with different privileges. It tracks who made what edits and allows for you to revert to any previous version. You can create campaigns and group stories by campaign. You can integrate with your WordPress or Medium site and publish directly to either or both on demand or on a schedule, as well as direct to social media accounts. You can review story metrics, as well, right from the dashboard. And, if you would like to find and hire a freelance writer to create the story, they have that feature in beta.
