What is Wrytr?
Wrytr’s mission is to provide anyone with a phone the ability to add some creativity to their lives by responding to – or creating – short burst writing prompts.
100 characters max for creating writing prompts.
250 characters max for writing responses to prompts.
Short. Fast. Easy.
[Yes, this seems really, simple and easy. Why? Can’t you build a Stories feature, enable dating or mint a coin? Come on!!]
With other apps, interactions can bring pressure. Pressure to be a voice who matters. Pressure to find the right meme or cool image. Pressure to DANCE! Pressure to gather likes, comments or build massive followings. While you can do some of that, to an extent on Wrytr (you can dance while holding your phone with the app open if you like), art direction and social metrics aren’t the point. The point is to open up the app, have some fun being creative, then get back to life.
We invite everyone to comment on any writing challenge they see that interests them. We invite people to create writing challenges and see what others have to say – even if it’s only you responding. The idea is to be fast, be funny or be entertained, but most of all be cool. If you’re not, the person who created the challenge you’ve responded to can delete your response instantly.
Yes, instantly. That’s why we built Wrytr the way we did. While all are welcome to join in, if someone isn’t being cool, there’s no need to wait for a moderator to render a decision. There’s no number of abuse complaints that need to be registered before action is taken. Nope. You create a challenge it’s all yours. See a response you don’t like, or that bothers you, spammy, etc.? One click and it’s gone forever.
We’ll set you up with a few accounts to get you started with options for challenges to respond to and write about. You can look through other challenge creators and add them to your featured feed. Remove an of them from that list whenever you like.
Or you can create challenges of your own.
It’s pretty simple. Be creative. Encourage others to be creative. Have fun.
If you have questions, suggestions or would like demo log in creds to take the app for spin, reach out and say hello.
