Write.as is the perfect long-term home for your writing. Over five-plus years in business, we've given hundreds of thousands of writers a place to share their work on the open web — and we're just getting started. We're ultimately building a suite of web publishing tools, starting with Write.as.

After launching in 2015, we're still 100% owned and operated by our founder, Matt Baer, who has no interest in making an "exit." We're in this for the long-haul, driven by principles like privacy by default, and the hope to build a software company that looks out for its users.
