Wow, we’re launched. Sweet.

Figment has launched! Break open the sparkling apple cider.

I can’t begin to express how excited I am about Figment. We’ve built a site with the aim of making it easier to share creative work and find great stories and authors online. But we have big dreams to expand and grow. So keep an eye on us!

I think this is a unique moment in the history of storytelling: what we write, how we discover new reading, how and even what we read is changing. And we plan to encourage these changes in our own way.

I hope that people will use Figment to write the kinds of things that we haven’t even dreamed of yet. And I hope that you discover things on Figment that push you to think of the intersection of creative writing and technology in new ways. That might be a tall order, but hey, we’re an optimistic bunch.

Have fun.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! My 11 year old is a voracious reader of all types of books and desperately wants to be a librarian and author. (Not to be outdone, her first grade sister is already pushing into third grade reading. NOTE TO PARENTS: Read to your kids everyday when they’re young!) This is EXACTLY the type of website I’m thrilled that I’ll have to make her shut off to go to bed!! Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to discover what “Figment” of their better selves kids will leave here.

    • orin levy, how will you prevent pedophiles from getting in touch with your daughter via this site? i don’t really see any privacy controls in place. i will not be recommending this site to my daughter. i prefer she continue to write in the privacy of her moleskin notebook.
