A better space for writers and storytellers.

Writing can be a solitary pursuit. And finding inspiration can be equally challenging when left to your own devices. Perhaps you’re in a writing group, but that’s maybe once a week. Then it’s over and you’re on your own again. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Story Swap is an online writing community for writers and storytellers to share their work, get constructive feedback, and grow in their craft. Start an online writing group. Share a short story, a scene-let, vignette, or maybe some dialogue. Test a few setting variations, or plot devices to see what works. Share an outline, a chapter, or even an entire story. It’s up to you.

The writing community is what makes it work. Share your comments with others, or receive feedback and make your own story better. It’s a dialogue about dialogue. A setting to thicken the plot. We all have a story to tell.

Start swapping.
