The YouTuber has announced This Modern Love, a book written by viewers, for viewers.
Making the announcement on 17 November via video, Will announced that This Modern Love was inspired by his reaction to a break-up he experienced last year, after which he and his audience became more vocal about their emotions online.
Will describes the book as a collaborative project between himself and his viewers, stating in the video:
“The book is written by you, and it’s written by anyone who is in love, who is out of love, and it’s a forum to share your experiences and feelings. It’s a chance to get something off your chest and put words to thoughts that might be too complicated to speak.”
Over the next few months, Will will be putting out questions for his audience to answer. All responses will be reviewed by him and his team, and those selected will be edited and put into the book. There are no requirements for entries, other than they should be written in letter form and shouldn’t exceed one page.
The first questions posed is: What would you say to your ex, without judgement?
Online entries can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, and those wishing to send in hand-written responses can do so by sending them to:

152 City Road
Will hopes that This Modern Love will allow readers to close the book on past relationships and to move on. Those wishing to pre-order the book can do so via Amazon.
