New Site and Freedom to Write Update

by Benjamin Hollon on September 16, 2023

Welcome, all, to the long-awaited website of Freedom to Write! It's spent a long time in development, a long time waiting for policies to be drafted, and more, but it's finally here.

Let's take a look at what's on the radar for the project.


Releases of readable.css are generally few and far between, but I've been collecting some minor fixes that need to be made in preparation for an imminent v1.1.1 update. Some issues on the plan so far:

Another big thing that's coming up: I plan to do a full review of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 with readable.css's compliance in mind. More information on that will be released as progress is made. You feedback and recommendations during the process and can be submitted at the relevant Codeberg issue.

Open Prompts

Open Prompts is a project that's been on the radar for a long time but hasn't had a tangible form yet. The idea is to have an open, curated directory of public domain writing prompts anyone can use and submit to.

I'm happy to announce that I've got a dedicated volunteer I'm working closely with to make this project a reality! We're in the planning stage right now; more information will be released as progress is made.


That concludes this month's update; I'll try to publish these monthly. You can subscribe to the Atom Feed to get those updates sent to your feed reader!
