About this project

Ever since i can remember, I'd always wanted to be professional writer.  After high school i gave it a shot but soon discovered it was very difficult to distinguish yourself from the crowd. I was also disappointed to see that most literary works are discarded without input from the desired demographics. I teamed up with a group of friends in digital media and came up with the idea for Juxed.

The vision for Juxed is to create a website for undiscovered writers to share and collaborate with one another creating new, original ideas. A platform is needed so that people can showcase their talents in an easily accessible medium. The idea is simple: Writers upload short stories online, the stories are then voted on by visitors and the highest rated stories are combined into a collection and published.

If you are tired of reading the same books about vampires and love triangles, here is your chance to make a difference. This site will give writers the ability to take risks. No longer must we hold back because a publisher may think your story won't sell. Let's allow the readers decide what they want to read.

The funds collected are going towards the creation and marketing of the site. We wish to come up with enough funds to give our vision a strong start. If you are a fan of literature and want to help make this dream a reality, your donations are greatly appreciated.
