The Art of Writing

Whether you're an author, editor, publisher, agent, reviewer, or simply someone passionate about storytelling, Libreon brings you together.

Writing doesn't have to be a solo process. The power of community is what Libreon is about. Here, you'll discover a wealth of resources designed to enhance your craft, connect with fellow writers to overcome those inevitable challenges, and lend your expertise to others in need.

"You can make anything by writing."
--C.S. Lewis

Stronger Together
Our belief is that diversity and inclusion strengthens us as people, even more so when we work together as a community.
We are committed to building and fostering an environment where all people feel included, valued, and heard. We strongly encourage contributions from women, people of color, people with disabilities, people with diverse gender and sexual identities, and everyone else who is qualified for and excited to help build something incredible.
Our community acknowledges each person's basic dignity, has empathy for every person's life situation, listens to and encourages each other's opinions and input, validates other people's contributions, and respects each other and each other's beliefs, even when we may disagree.
Each of you has something wonderful to contribute — let's help each other unlock our potential and make something amazing together!
Our community chat is a place for people to connect with each other, ask for help with their work, and is a place to get support using the Venturly system.
“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.”
—Ernest Hemingway

Libreon Content Rating and Guides

To address the limitations and confusion around conventional book categories like "Young-Adult" or "Adult," as well as the ever-sprawling disarray of genres, Libreon offers open-source, modern, and user-friendly content rating and guide systems. We aim to provide clear and objective information about a book's content, helping readers make informed decisions by removing the confusion plaguing current book categorization methods.

Libreon Content Ratings (LCR) focuses on describing content elements that may be objectionable to consumers, ensuring transparency, and empowering readers to select books without unexpected disagreeable content. The Libreon Content Guide (LCG) strives to provide clarity and consistency in categorizing books by supporting multiple "feature labels" to describe the contents rather than trying to find one single correct category. Our goal is to present a straightforward guide for readers, enhancing their understanding of a book's thematic elements beyond that already covered by the Rating.
