Write, Save And Publish, That’s All You Need To Share Your Poem

Walter Wellesley “Red” Smith, one of America’s most read sports columnist once rightly remarked, “There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein.”.  If you wanna share a self composed poem and want to get it published to be found out by rest of the world, Pen.io is the simplest tool out there.

With its purpose specific interface you can get the job done without needing to worry about any other thing. All you need to do is go ahead and select an available pen.io URL and create the page.


The password needed for creating a pen.io page is all you need to edit the page at a later time. After creating the URL you will be taken to a page where you can type in your words. Clicking the the default text will let you replace them with your words. Once everything is set press the save button. You are all set to publish your work and share the URL (the one you created) with the world.


Some other goodies about the service is that you can add other basic elements like video, links to enhance the reading experience of your readers. It works with simple tags like “:video”, “:link” etc.

Next time you wish to edit the page just visit your page URL with “/edit” (without quotes) appended at the end of it. You will be asked for the password you used while creating the page. You can take on to writing from there. With no expiry date and no cost for your pages you can document your work without worrying about its deletion.

Less is more. Sometimes these golden words are what an user is looking for a more focussed interface. Nowadays, an all-in-one trend is seen on most apps. Pen.io is one of those apps which strictly stands on the other side of this spectrum that focuses on a single task and does that in simple yet powerful way. Let us know, if you are willing give it a try next time you are hoping to share your piece of literature with others?
