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.
