Hemingway App

notebook and pen

– by Mary May Larmoyeux

Have you ever heard of the Hemingway App? I first learned about it on Daphene Gray-Grant’s blog, the “Publication Coach.”

The Hemingway App is an easy-to-use, online tool for editing. Here’s how to use it:


  1. Go to the Hemingway App.
  2. Notice the two buttons on top-right side of the screen: Write and Edit.
  3. Click on Write.
  4. Now delete the sample copy on the screen (“Hemingway highlights long, complex sentences …”) and replace with your own copy
  5. Click “Edit” and the see the online editor’s suggestions.

If you’ve used the Hemingway App before, what tips do you have for us?

Do you have another favorite editing tool?

Finally, if you live in the Central Arkansas Area, StoryWriting Studio blogger Karen Jordan and I will be doing a workshop on Friday, November 7, called Countdown to Christmas. We’ll share how to write special family stories and makes some unique Christmas gifts. For more information go to the Countdown to Christmas page.
