This study aims to understand the functioning of authorship in collaborative platforms, using the theoretical and methodological model proposed by Maingueneau (2012), with the notion of creator paratopia. This theory is used to indicate paradoxical belonging to the literary institution, which is understood in its inextricable relation with enunciative devices that make authorship possible. We analyzed Wattpad and Widbook, two collaborative platforms of self-publishing, which work as a shop window to user-authors (which we'll call scribes in this dissertation) to attract conventional publishers and give more credibility and legitimacy to authorship work. In a period in which the number of new reading practices is growing more and more because of new technologies, the printed book still seems to be responsible for giving a status of writer and work. We try to understand the medium influence (DEBRAY, 1991; MAINGUENEAU, 2012) in the way texts posted on these collaborative platforms are received and how medium affects scribes’ works, whose texts receive a nonprofessional editorial mediation by users of these platforms, called adjuvant scribes - user-readers that comment, make questions and suggestions, and therefore, exercise power over authoring production. With this study, we intend to understand how authorship management works in collaborative platforms, observing the interlacing of the creator paratopia instances - the person, writer and inscriber, as well as the management of canonic space and associate space, as these platforms force user-authors to be responsible for managing their production and what is said about it.
