Writing Exchange registrations 

I've changed registrations on to invite-only again, as new accounts have slowed down a lot, and we're starting to see some spam accounts.

Remember, you can always send an invite link if you know someone else that would like to join!

Thanks to the way Open Collective works, and calculates things, we're currently at estimated €99/month.

Scratch that! As I was preparing this post, we've crushed the €100 / month goal!

Thank you so much everyone, one time donations, monthly donations, yearly donations, donation matchers (which aren't even accounted for yet!)!

Haven't done this in a while, but I'd like to get a sense of what's most important to everyone as we head into the summer. Are you happy with the platform? What planned feature development should we prioritize?

Please share your thoughts in our latest survey (and sorry for the Google form!): forms.gle/acgit3Z2QCTv2vjx9

I can see some functionality of Read.as merging with Remark.as in time. Whereas I think we need a line between creating something and sharing / talking about it (e.g. Write.as vs. Remark.as), I think the line between reading something and talking about it should be a little thinner. So things like following blogs and bookmarking posts will be at home on Remark.as (playing off the blog bookmarking feature just added).

My name's Brandon. I'm currently an student (or at least I will be for another week, when I graduate), and I hope to become a full-fledged soon. I was diagnosed with autism two years ago, and as I try to move into a library career, I hope to advocate for and neurodiverse voices within the profession.

Outside of LIS, I'm a human to an incredibly spoiled Japanese Chin, as well as a Trekkie and a Whovian. I also have a lot of other special interests.

Hi everyone, I'm new to Mastodon, and I write fantasy fiction (adult and YA).

I'm querying agents for my first novel (epic fantasy) while writing my second (gender-flipped Three Musketeers-meets-Treasure Island with a dark academia vibe) in my spare time.

I love my day job as an academic (PhD in medieval lit), but here I'll be be posting about fiction writing, the query/rejection (!) process, and things that I'm reading and watching.

I look forward to meeting you!
