TRU Writer offers a simple but elegant web publishing platform that lets visitors quickly publish full formatted and media rich articles, essays, papers — without requiring any logins or tracking of personal information.
Published written works are presented in a style similar to that at Medium.com, clean text, wide margins, all in a format that looks just as good on a mobile phone as it does on a large screen monitor.
A published work includes a header image which is upload to the TRU Writer. Authors can remain anonymous or give credit in any way they choose. The body of the written work has a full featured rich text editor, and media can also be uploaded to be included within the body text.
Media such as YouTube or vimeo video, SoundCloud audio, or flickr photos can be embedded simply by putting a URL on an empty line.
As an example see To the People of Sangamo County, which was Abraham Lincoln’s first political speech made in 1832
The text of the speech has been augmented by embedded audio and video files.
Content can be authored directly in TRU Writer or you can copy the contents of anything written in a word processor, or already published on a web page, paste it into the TRU Writer editor. Most standard formatting (headers, bold, italic, underline, lists, blockquotes, hypertext links) will be preserved.
