Finally getting around to wrapping up the #WriteFreely v0.11 release. Expect that to come out before the weekend!

Of course, this is powered by our new Submit.as service. If you want to give it a try while it's in beta, let us know here or over on the forum!


Throughout November and beyond, we'll accept submissions there and publish them to our @cues blog and @readwriteas.

To celebrate , we're launching Write.as Cues, a blog dedicated to giving you a weekly creative . Here's our first one:


@nurinoas Yep! We're eventually going to have a full plugin / add-on called @remark_as.

We're working toward that by introducing support for ActivityPub mentions in the near future (currently in progress here: writefreely.org/pull/195).

This month, to coincide with , we've made some Pro features free for everyone. But whether you're participating or not, we'll also be sharing ways you can use Write.as / to get your story out on the platform -- no matter what form it takes.

Here's our guide on how to set a blog up for your story with our "Novel" format:


One feature we're opening up for free throughout November is an extra blog. This gives you a fresh space to write your story, whether it's for or not.

We're finally taking care of all the non-technical work needed on Write.as, like better help documentation and minor annoying bugs / missing pieces.

For example, we're putting all our help on (fittingly) a Write.as blog, howto.write.as, and then linking to that site from various places in the application. (Previously, we might've linked to an old Help page from 2015 or guides.write.as.)

Hopefully this makes everything much easier to use!

@devporto WriteFreely doesn't support it yet -- we're keeping replies off the platform for now while we figure out a good way to do them.

Soon you'll be able to mention other fediverse accounts (writefreely.org/pull/195) to get a sort of commenting system, and then eventually we hope to have optional comments with @remark_as.

Anyone running #WriteFreely via Docker, by any chance?

I'd like to deploy it to one of my VPSes, but everything is running there in Docker, wouldn't want to set up WriteFreely + deps outside.

(Boosts appreciated)
