Clear the clutter and focus on your writing

Simple and focused

Write.as is designed to help you get your thoughts down — and published — instantly.

Easy publishing

Write in our auto-saving editor, and click "Pub­lish" to put them online.

Ad-free

You'll never see ads when you're focused on your work, and neither will your readers.

Free your thoughts

We don't track you, so you can write exactly what you feel. Write anonymously or under different identities, giving you full control over who knows what about you. Write.as is used by writers, students, and everyday people who need a safe outlet online.

Stay independent

Build a site with your own domain name, and your own look. Then rest easy knowing you're never stuck here — Write.as is powered by open source software called WriteFreely that you can always self-host.

Here, your readers are free from walled gardens, too. They can get your updates on the web, in their inbox, via RSS, or on their favorite social network — even de­cen­tra­lized platforms like Mastodon and Pleroma.
