A clean, minimalist publishing platform made for writers

Built on a plain, auto-saving editor, WriteFreely provides a distraction-free writing environment. Its ActivityPub implementation allows connecting with other Fediverse projects, such as Mastodon and Friendica. WriteFreely also allows completely anonymous blogs and posts.

Available WriteFreely instances can be found here.


  • Article categorization with hashtags
  • Menu-like interface can be created with static pages by pinning normal posts to your blog.
  • Draft post creation
  • Publishing to multiple blogs from one account
  • Support for non-Latin and right-to-left (RTL) script languages
  • Minimal data collection
  • Anonymous posting
  • Optional custom CSS theming (default layout is very minimal)
