Amazon Storywriter is a free cloud-based screenwriting app[1] launched by Amazon in 2015.[2] Storywriter provides automatic formatting for screenplays on the Master Scene Standard.[citation needed] The app allows easy submission of original screenplays for production consideration in Amazon Studios.[citation needed]

In April 2018, Amazon Studios announced they will no longer accept open submissions of screenplays.

In May 2019, Amazon Studios announced Amazon Storywriter and Storybuilder will be discontinued as of June 30, 2019 with accounts disabled and any content not downloaded becoming inaccessible.[3]

Reception[edit]

The product is understood to have ease of use and a gentle learning curve, but is not a replacement for products such as Final Draft or WriterDuet which have import and export facilities.[4]
