Beyond privacy, WriterShelf offers unique and practical advantages when for sharing messages with the world.
In everyday life, we adjust our voice to fit the particular situation we’re in. We speak differently with friends, family and workmates. Pen names offer the same flexibility to tailor your presentation to your audience so that your message is taken in the way you intend.
Pen names are also a way to encourage dialog and exchange by lowering the risk for people looking for information. Every search we make and website we visit has the potential of being recorded and accessed by employers, businesses and governments. Being able to pose questions about potentially sensitive topics using pen names can be the difference between asking and not seeking important information.
For individuals or groups, WriterShelf's unique publishing and forum features offer a simplified path for setting up an online home for sharing information and building community.
Choosing the right pen name can help position your message so that your audience hears what you want to say in the way that you want to say it..
