Some popular free websites to write stories online include writerscafe.org, figment.com, storybird.com and inklestudios.com. Some popular social media-linked online writing websites include wattpad.com, which is currently the largest online community of readers and writers, as of 2015, and quotev.com.
Many of these websites are linked through Facebook and are used by authors as places to not only write, but to receive feedback and create a following based off of their stories. Figment, Inkle, Wattpad and Quotev are all for PG-13 and under writers, although Wattpad is linked with AfterDark, which is an adult site specifically for R rated content. Storybird allows writers to add pictures to the pages of stories and is a top choice for educators. Most of these websites allow all genres, but WritersCafe is specifically for poetry, short stories, novels, scripts and screenplays.
