StoryBilder is a creative writing platform designed to help new and aspiring writers write novels and other longer form fiction. It contains flexible workflows and adaptable structures to provide guidance, with an underlying education layer and creativity wizards to provide support and help as required. An optional story asset library full of characters, maps and outlines from classic literature, folk and fairy tales, and mythology can be used as a starting point, mix-and-matched, or adapted. Together, these elements form a creative playspace where writers can learn, explore and write.

“We couldn’t have brought StoryBilder to market without the support and encouragement of our many friends and colleagues,” said Gough. “The Swipe Write Contest is our way of showing our appreciation, and we invite writers of all experience levels to submit their stories.”
