Beacon empowers writers by letting you fund their work for $5 a month. That means you, the reader, decide what writers and stories get published instead of advertisers.
When you fund a writer on Beacon, you also get access to every story from every other writer. New writers are added each month so your subscription becomes more valuable over time.
For $5 a month, you can access every story, by every writer on Beacon — it’s like Netflix for news. You can pay by Credit Card, PayPal, or Amazon, and cancel your subscription at any time.
Beacon was designed from the ground up to be a clean and simple reading experience that looks and feels great on any screen. It wasn’t easy, but trust us, it was worth it.
writersblock is a small community where journalists read, comment on, and submit the best stories on the web.
Occasional prizes are given out to the top story of the day, which honestly, is better than pageviews.
