Introducing SHAXPIR

Writing Workspace

Shaxpir is a complete writing workspace, with room for big projects like novels and memoirs, and special places to keep your small ideas and fragments organized.

Offline Anytime

Shaxpir is a desktop application, not just a website. Whether you're at a cabin in the woods, or just off the grid for a few hours, you don't have to be online to write.

Cloud Powered

Whenever you're online, Shaxpir automatically synchronizes your data to our secure backup servers in the cloud, so you'll never lose your work again.

Sortable Chapters

Shaxpir provides easy drag-and-drop tools to rearrange your manuscript, changing the order and hierarchy of chapters, so you can find a structure that works for your story.

Version History

Shaxpir keeps a historical archive in the cloud of all your changes over time, so you can always go back in time and restore a paragraph of text you may have hastily deleted last month.

Margin Comments

Shaxpir lets you hightlight a few words — or an entire paragraph — and jot down your thoughts in the margins, keeping your revision ideas nearby for when you're ready to polish your final draft.

Story Notes

Keep detailed notes for every element of your story: characters, places, themes, etc… Then link those notes directly to the chapters in your manuscript.

Concept Art

Enhance your brainstorming by thinking visually, bringing your characters and settings to life by attaching concept artwork to all your story notes and ideas.


Keep track of character relationships and story structure by creating connections between your notes. It's like having your own private wikipedia for the world of your story.

HTML Export

Assemble your manuscript and publish it in an open portable file format. HTML is the standard for publishing on the web, as well as the underlying technology of all modern eBook publishers.

Goal Oriented

There's no better way to improve your craft than to write every day. Shaxpir tracks your daily writing sessions and plots your progress toward your long-term goals.

Works Everywhere

With support for both Mac and Windows platforms, you can start a new chapter at home on your MacBook, and pick up where you left off on your Windows work computer.
