May 30, 2024 | 2 min read

As the first letter of the Greek alphabet, alpha (Α or α) signifies the start of something magnificent.

📚 In the publishing world, alpha readers are the trusted people who read an unedited, typo-riddled first draft.

🚀 Within space exploration, alpha denotes the most brilliant star in a constellation.

✨ And here at Freewrite, Alpha signifies the start of your brightest work yet.
