Creative writing with Scribeasy

Scribeasy is a computer program that uses storyboarding to get you writing. It helps you to tell your stories with pictures, suggestions, themes and lesson plans.

Create a super story in simple steps:

  1. Create an account
  2. Make a picture
  3. Write about your picture
  4. Repeat!

Hundreds of pictures and multi-sensory elements to inspire your grand story are a mouse-click away. You pick a background, some characters and objects to set your scene, and then start writing.

As you write, you can add sounds, watch interesting and helpful videos, and get writing tips. There is support from a digital thesaurus and spell check, font management, simple translations, and many more accessibility features.

Take a look at some stories in our Scribeasy library.

You’ll witness your improvement as a writer with rewarding skill badges. Scribeasy is for everyone, of any learning style. By using it, you will get better at asking questions, thinking, working on ideas, being creative and experimenting.
