Freewrite is proud to be a sponsor of NaNoWriMo 2022!
We make dedicated drafting devices for writers like you without the distraction – or temptation – of browsers, apps, or notifications.
Why Freewrite? We help you get into writing flow and develop longer writing sessions by separating the creative drafting from the editing processes. When it is time to edit, your drafts seamlessly sync with the cloud for export into Scrivener, Word, Google Docs, or your software of choice.
Since 2014, hundreds of millions of words have been written on Freewrite devices, and tens of thousands of writers have reached their literary goals because it works. We're excited to help you push your productivity forward, meet your NaNoWriMo goals, and tap into writing joy. Write on!

Reviews From Real NaNoWriMo Participants
A Typewriter for the Modern Age
I backed the Freewrite Traveler years ago as a great go to distraction free writing machine. I am using it for NaNoWriMo 2021 and average 2,000+ words per day! I was cornered the refresh rate of e-ink screens would be a concern but I’ve had no issues. I love that my writing is backed up in 3+ places and that my writing progress is tracked on Postbox. The keyboard is heavenly (although I want to original Freewrite now too 😰) and the battery life does not disappoint.
The freewrite traveler is an elegant and well designed device to keep you focused on your writing and not your distractions. I used it during NaNoWriMo this year and was frequently delighted at how quickly my word count went up when I was using the Traveler, far away from my computer. The Postbox service is instant and makes it easy to move your text into something more permanent when you're done writing.
They shipped it right before NaNoWriMo and it was absolutely a Goddess send. I've been trying to write for months and then this lovely device came. People are often hesitant to even consider the Traveler, but it's very obvious to me that distraction free writing is so important. It's pleasurable to write on and I've written 35,000+ words so far! Thank you, Freewrite!
