Wiki backend and Wordpress frontend?

I'm trying to set up a collaborative community for writers where we could edit, revise and comment on each other's writing behind the scenes and "publish" finished pieces to a blog-like front page.

I'm working on a noncommercial website designed for people that enjoy writing but lack technical skill, experience, or could benefit from peer review--an online writing workshop if you will.
My question is: Is there a way to have wiki-style collaborative editing and annotation, accessible only to members, but a publishing option that would allow the easy theme and plug in integration of Wordpress?
I recently fiddled around with a Wordpress site, learning as I went. (Of course, I learned the most by breaking it utterly). I've gone from 0 to novice at CSS and am hovering around the beginner level of PHP. SQL is a scary but necessary monster I've poked once or twice, but mostly would like to hide from.
I have never used Wiki software beyond poking about on Wikipedia, but I'm a fairly quick study.
Is there a way to merge the two? Is it even necessary (i.e. does one or the other offer these options and I just don't know?)? Is there an option C I haven't heard of?
I've searched throughout AskMe, the Wordpress codex and Google, but I'm not sure if I'm phrasing my searches appropriately.
Any examples or suggestions are appreciated.
