Amazon Storywriter was a free cloud-based screenwriting app[1] launched by Amazon in 2015.[2] Storywriter provided automatic formatting for screenplays on the Master Scene Standard.[citation needed] The app allowed original screenplays to be submitted to Amazon Studios for production consideration until April 2018 when submissions were closed.[3]

In May 2019, Amazon Studios announced Amazon Storywriter and Storybuilder were to be discontinued on June 30, 2019 with accounts disabled and any content not downloaded becoming inaccessible.[4][5] Attempting to access Amazon Storywriter after the discontinue date will redirect the user to Amazon Studios' website.

Reception[edit]

The product was understood to have ease of use and a gentle learning curve, but was not a replacement for products such as Final Draft or WriterDuet which have import and export facilities.[6]
