A powerful writing environment for novelists and screenwriters

Do you have a story to tell? Unlike conventional word processors,
Storyist helps you track your plot, characters, and settings,
and keeps all of your writing organized and accessible—
so you can focus on telling your story.

Produce submission-ready manuscripts and screenplays

Storyist provides a rich text editor with support for comments, images, headers, footers, and style sheets so you can create properly formatted manuscripts and screenplays. And Storyist comes with manuscript and screenplay templates so you can focus on the writing, not the formatting.

Get a high-level overview of your story

Storyist lets you sketch out a story using index cards and then refine it with customizable plot, character, and setting sheets. When you're ready to put words on the page, Storyist can even display your index cards next to your manuscript as you write.

Keep all your writing organized and accessible

Storyist organizes your novel manuscripts, screenplays, research, and other project-related writing and can store them in the cloud so you can access them quickly wherever you are.

Reviews and Testimonials

  • I've written three novels for Putnam's, each using the Mac version of Storyist. I'm currently traveling in Europe and am just now putting the finishing touches on the book that will be published in September. I'm using the Storyist app for my iPad Mini and it's sensational... a real godsend.

  • If I could have only one screenwriting app on my iPad, Storyist would be it.

    - Taz Goldstein, Hand Held Hollywood
  • I use Storyist for both Mac and iOS at every stage of the writing process. For The Sedumen Chronicles, I’ve used it to collect and organize my research, plot out my stories, and write my manuscripts. Having everything in one place, laid out the way I want it, lets me focus on being creative instead of fumbling between multiple applications.

  • Swan Princess is my third novel written entirely in Storyist. Being able to see all my characters on screen while I'm writing and having all the research and character information right there makes life SO much easier.

    - C.P. Lesley, Novelist
  • My two last novels (the second book of Baron Noir, my steampunk series, and Evariste, a thriller) were written on Storyist, and I'm working on the third volume of the Baron Noir saga. For novels, I don't know a better tool than Storyist.
