So, you’re a writer. Me, too! And if you’re anything like me, that probably means you want to get your words out there in front of as many people as possible.
These days, that means having an online presence.
You’d love your own website, but the idea feels overwhelming… and you’re worried it might turn out to be expensive, with hidden fees dinging you when you least expect it. In fact, just thinking about it makes you anxious, and so you put the idea aside yet again… even though you know you might be missing out.
How does a free website sound? No strings, no hidden fees, no credit card info required?
I’m William Kowalski, a best-selling novelist and a web designer, and I built My Writing Network (MWN) for you. This is not a sales pitch — it’s a gift. You can have your own website on My Writing Network, completely free. No catch. No hidden fees. And on top of that, your MWN membership includes admission into our small but growing community of writers, with private forums, a secret Facebook group, and a network blog feed.
This means that not only are you getting your own website, you’re also getting the support of a community of like-minded people with one common goal: to help each other promote their work online.
What can you do with your MWN website? Anything you like, including:
- Publish blog posts, poems, or short stories
- Serialize chapters of longer works
- Connect with your readership
- Build a mailing list
- Sell books, products, courses, or videos as digital downloads
- Link to your Amazon book pages
… and many, many other things!
Not an internet guru? Doesn’t matter. If you can:
- Send and receive email
- Surf the internet
- Use a word processor (like Word or Pages)
…then you already possess all the technical skills you need to master your own MWN website. You just need to repurpose them a little bit. Your site comes with a suite of instructional videos that will teach you everything else you need to know, and we have excellent technical support available as well.
Paid upgrade packages are available, but they are completely optional. You don’t need to spend a dime.
Here’s the bottom line: You can have a fully functional website up and running in as little as one minute, at no cost.
So how do you sign up for My Writing Network? Just visit https://mywriting.network. All you need is a valid email address. No other personal information is required.
If it sounds too good to be true… it isn’t!
So why am I doing this? I’ve had a lot of help from others throughout my career, and I wouldn’t be where I am without it. This is my way of giving back. I built My Writing Network because I saw how many hopeful authors were struggling with technical issues that previous generations of writers simply didn’t have to deal with.
The publishing gatekeepers are history, but new challenges have risen in their place. We all need help. Working together, we can do anything. That’s what My Writing Network is all about!

I appreciate your desire to help writers and your efforts in putting all this together. Definitely in the spirit of Indies Unlimited!
Thanks to you as well, Shawn. I think we can accomplish much more working together!
Hi-what if you already have a website but would love to take advantage of the “network?” This is such a wonderful service–thank you.
Hi Stacie, you can certainly have a MWN website if you already have another website elsewhere. (You can have as many websites as you want!) As far as how to use them to best advantage, that depends on your needs, but I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about your particular situation. As far as domain names go, MWN will give you a default domain name of your choice (like stacie.mywriting.network) but you can always use Domain Mapping to map another domain (like stacie.com) to your MWN site, so that is what people see. If this is confusing, just drop me a line at support @ mywriting.network and I’ll be happy to explain further.
Hi, I signed up a while back, but unfortunately I have to wait a while before I can go forward with it. It’s great that you offer so much!
Hi Candace, I did see your signup when you first joined. If I can be of any assistance, please let me know.
Thanks – I will definitely need assistance! Your upgrade prices are very reasonable, and I understand they are much less than what WP would charge.
What a nice resource – thank you!
Thank you for your comment!
It’s all about working together. Thanks for being there.
Yes it is! Thank you as well.
This is great information. I recently conducted a workshop on self-publishing for newbies, and this could be super helpful to many of them who don’t know how to start building their platform. Thanks!
Hi Melissa, that is one of the groups I built the network for: people new to self-publishing who might feel overwhelmed by the whole prospect of getting online. Please feel free to mention it to anyone in this group, or to any future groups.
A free web site for independent writers…until you get to the part about upgrades, which naturally cost money.
Upgrades are completely optional, and sites function fully without them.
Thank you so much! Pinned & shared. 🙂
Thank you, Linda Lee! I appreciate your support.
I’ll pass this on to a couple of newbies I’m editing for. Good work, William
Very nice of you, Gordon, thanks. If they or anyone else need assistance, they are always welcome to contact me directly.
