Amazon's Newest Publishing Platform Goes Live - Write On!

In a direct response to the 9 year growth rate of Wattpad, Amazon has launched Write On, a social network where self-publishing authors can offer their work to the community for feedback. You don't need to be a writer to use it. Readers are invited to browse the offered snippets, outlines, sketches, or even full works by other writers.

The site was originally launched in beta back in October of 2014. One of the major benefits of the platform is that it will give new writers a chance to get feedback on their work from the most valuable source available – potential readers. Posting your work, even in the idea or infancy stage, can give you some real insight into whether it would even be worth blowing-out into a more meaty piece. Readers are invited to comment on every aspect of the work, from readability and content, to grammar and punctuation.

This newest member of Amazon's growing stable of crowdsourcing, authorship, and publishing platforms means that you can literally take your book from start to finish directly on the website. The Write On site itself is already showcasing a substantial selection of reading material. If you'd like more information, visit the site at
