Clear the clutter and focus on your writing

Simple and focused

Write.as isn't made for build­ing any kind of website. It helps you get your thoughts down — and published — fast.

Frictionless publishing

Make writing and publishing a habit, with no distractions to interrupt your cre­ative flow.

Auto-saving editor

Know your writing will always be waiting for you when you get back, even if you don't "save" before leaving.

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

Break away from free sites that plaster their name over your work. Build a site with your own domain name, and your own look. Then rest easy knowing you're never stuck here — Write.as is built on open source software 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.
