Origin

 

With the advent of self publishing, it was clear that authors would need to become more autonomous, no longer able to rely on the expertise of publishers, especially when it came to the marketing of their works. Authors would need to hire out the skills they didn't possess, such as copy editing and book design, eventually creating a team of experts who worked together to get the author's work to market.

 

Abby and Kelsye met at the "Seattle Daylight Writer's Group," a Friday morning coffee shop based meetup.com group founded by Kelsye in 2008. It was at these meetups that Abby, Kelsye and several group "regulars" began discussing the needs of authors and the idea for Writer.ly was formed.
