This website was established in 1997 under the name "Lonesome Writer's Lounge". It always has been and still is a free and open platform for writers from all over the world to present their work to an international english-speaking audience. Looking back on the website's history of more than 20 years, WritersLounge.net has been a small but true pioneer venture, one of the first websites offering user generated content only in a community-like online environment, long before "social media" even existed.
Take a look at our these "historic" screenshots since 1997 :)
