Write House

About Us

What is this about?

Write House is a forthcoming generalist community of blogs, a safe invite-only place to celebrate who you are and what you like. Your posts can be read here on the site, subscribed to via RSS, or followed on “federated” services such as Mastodon. (Email subscriptions are coming, too.) Plus, you can choose to include your posts in our public community feed.

You can talk to us on Twitter and Mastodon if you've got any questions while we are putting things together, or follow us on Write.as for news and announcements.

(If you want to get a better idea of the WriteFreely platform, you can check out Write.as, the flagship site from the folks behind the software, although it includes more features than third-party sites like Write House.)

How do people join?

Write House is an invite-only community. At launch, you will have to know Bix, in order to sign up. Members then will be able to invite others.

What's not allowed?

Members of Write House will be expected to abide by a Code of Conduct modeled either on the Community Covenant, the XOXO Festival Community Code of Conduct, or some combination of the two. It will prioritize marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort.

Full, local text to come.

TL;DR: No fear. No hate. No thoughtless bullshit. (And no nazis.)

Does it cost anything?

The hosting plan for Write House is not expected to exceed $10/month, barring unlikely, unexpected growth. Members will be asked, but not required, to help cover the hosting plan and administrative labor through our Patreon.

Who's behind this?

Write House is managed by Bix, powered by WriteFreely, and hosted by WriteFreely Host. It's a real piece of Mediocre Work.

What is WriteFreely?

“WriteFreely is built around writing. There's no news feed, notifications, or unnecessary likes or claps to take you away from your train of thought. You get a distraction-free writing environment, and readers can enjoy a clean reading experience.”
