Associates of World Writers Collective:
The Story Mint
The Story Mint is a community of writers who work together to encourage and give each other constructive feedback. Its goal is to create excellent writers using a combination of automated and personalised tools. The unique Stylefit tool (previously stylecheck) guides writers to find the perfect pitched voice for the audience. Writers can experiment writing different genres with the serials. Writers also learn other key writing skills such as maintaining tense, writing believable dialogue and much more.
There are many other services. For example, writers can store or publish their writing on the Writers' Pad.
The company is in Rotorua, New Zealand. Private investors breathed life into The Story Mint and the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment invested in the development of Stylefit.
Stylefit is an innovative online tool that enables writers to be the best they can be.
Stylefit makes English writing simple and understandable in a safe and secure environment.
Stylefit is used by managers, CEOs, communicators, professionals, students and publishers across business, education and the community.
The Story Mint NEWS
Join Part 2 of our "From STEM to STEAM" series to explore how we can successfully put the Arts into STEM and involve those skills we learn through the Arts (particularly writing!) to achieve great results.
Join Our Lockdown Writing Competition for Students!
Why are we doing this?
We know lockdown can get a bit much with the same routine day in, day out, staying indoors, unable to meet with friends. Students are feeling it, parents are feeling it, teachers are feeling it.
We wondered how best to add some fun into the day-to-day reality of lockdown while still keeping everyone safe. So…let’s write!
