Youtube changed the way we share videos, Flickr transformed photo-sharing and Facebook enabled us to share our social activity with friends and family in a way we never could before. Now, a new internet start-up, called WriteSpread, is preparing to change the way readers and writers enjoy and share their “love of the written word”.
Nathaniel Chandler and Onye Anuna, co-founders of the company, describe their web-creation as “a community with a shared enthusiasm for the written word,” and the “home of the imaginative, expressive writer and the passionate reader.” They intend on revolutionising how people share writing online by improving the experience for the reader, as well as the writer.
“WriteSpread is a platform for those who translate their thoughts to words, to play at the forefronts of our minds and be appreciated,”
As well as creating an online writing library, WriteSpread will be a writing tool. It will make improving your writing, developing as a writer and finding writing you will enjoy reading all seemingly effortless. “In creative writing especially, the way a piece is performed or delivered is sometimes even more important than the words themselves, and we have taken that into consideration with features the site is launching with, as well as ones that are currently in development.”
Mr Chandler, a mathematics undergraduate, and Mr Anuna, a user experience web designer, have been developing this idea since last year and are looking forward to showing how much more WriteSpread has to offer compared to any of its competitors. “We understand there are already websites out there for writers, but WriteSpread will let users share their passion, not just their words.”
WriteSpread.com is currently available to register your interest in, to ensure you are eligible to sign up to it once it launches this summer. Is this the site that will change how we share our writing online? We shall soon see.
