A Guide to the Best Writer's Software for Every Kind of Writing
From screenwriting and novel writing to resume writing and speech writing...
...and every kind in between!

Here for the first time is a website devoted exclusively to helping you locate the best software in virtually every category of software for writers
We are not including here basic stand-alone word-processing programs and their accessories -- such as dictionaries and spelling, grammar, and usage checkers (except for one shining exception -- StyleWriter Style/Usage Writing Software -- which is considered head and shoulders above any grammar checker for writers). Nor are we including desk-top publishing programs or forms generators or data processing. And we are not dealing with translation or conversion of any sort. The exclusive concern is with writing, period.
