Write the World

What’s It Like? Write the World is a global online writing community that lets teens submit their own work and get feedback from peers, writing instructors, and professional writers. After creating a free account, students and teachers can join groups sorted by interests and genres, or students can join private groups generated by their teacher. There’s an unlimited range of ways to write and things to write about here, from poetry and fan fiction (or “fanfic”) to current events and college entrance essays. Users are guided by task-related rubrics (including rubrics for narrative and argumentative writing tasks), pointed research prompts, and annotated feedback from peers and professional writers.

Price: Free/subscription

Grades: 8-12

Rating: 4/5

Pros: Great prompts and a lively community connect teens from across the globe, fostering cultural awareness and a shared love for writing.

Cons: Public posts could potentially lead to online privacy and safety issues; monitor with care.

Bottom line: With interest-based writing prompts and thoughtful feedback from peers and pros, this is a great tool for writing for authentic audiences.
