A site for authors, created by authors.


Stephanie and Amanda (A.L.) were partnered up during a writing project nearly 10 years ago. They learned they had much more than just writing in common and bonded right away. Over the years, they have supported each other’s other writing and have grown together, eventually adding Heidi to their dynamic duo. This writing relationship naturally evolved into a dream: to build a writing community that would offer others the support they found in each other. Our Write Side was launched in October of 2015 and has seen incredible growth since.


Our Write Side has now grown to include OWS Chrysalis, our one stop service department for all author needs no matter how big or small, OWS Inked, our quarterly literary journal, our own bookstore and now, we are fully registered and licensed small publishing house, operating as Catterfly Publishing. What was once just a spark of an idea has transformed into OWS Ink, LLC, a company that will continue to grow and support the writers it loves so much. We are so happy to be open for business and to have you all with us on this journey of words and visions. We look forward to reading your anthology, poetry, and article submissions and making your dreams (and ours!) become reality.

Did you know all parts of OWS Ink from our community to our lit journal, our graphic designers to editors and beyond, are run completely by volunteers? You could be a huge part of our success just by offering a small donation to help us continue to provide these quality services for authors from all walks of life. If you would like to make a donation, click here. We’ll even send you some swag as thanks for your donation.

Our Write Side Mission Statement:

It is our mission to build a resource filled community of support to help writers at all levels achieve their goals. Additionally, we strive to help these writers connect to readers and build their individual author platforms.

So, now that you’ve met us, feel free to look around. Stick around for awhile, and let Our Write Side become Your Write Side, too!
