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.

      Simple, unambiguous, clutter-free writing made easy for anyone. Hemingway is a godsend for people like me that, completely unintentionally, wax poetic about stuff that can be said in a few words.

      I started using Hemingway from it's first iteration. First for my uni assignments and since then I've used it for almost everything. Slide decks, presentations, social posts, campaign copy, you name it. I even used it for this review! haha

    Draft

    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.

    Scrivener

    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.

      I love Scrivener. I'm less than enthused about the Windows version, but on Mac it's fantastic and windows is getting there.. Wish there were better ways to sync data but Dropbox is decent enough. Better integration with citation software would be nice too.

      I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.

      Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.

    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.

    StoryChief.io

    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.

      Initially I thought about StoryChief as an automation tool; it's like Buffer, but for articles.

      After used it for a while (since May), I figured out it's also great as

      1) a planning tool

      2) a way to deal less with the WordPress. Somehow I like WordPress, but hate their admin area.

      I've tried Storychief a couple of times, and I constantly see the product evolving. The team is doing a great job, solving some real pains for anyone in content marketing or editorial teams.
