About the authors of Writer's Café

Anthemion Software Ltd. is a small software house based in Edinburgh, UK. Edinburgh has a strong literary tradition, being home to such writers as J.K. Rowling, Ian Rankin, Alexander MacCall Smith, Sir Walter Scott, and Robert Louis Stevenson.

As well as software to help writers, we sell tools for software developers, in particular DialogBlocks and HelpBlocks.

Our goal with Writer's Café is to make writing software that our customers use over and over again. We do not believe in very prescriptive approaches to writing, which tend to stifle creativity, and this is reflected in our software. The only person who knows how to structure your particular story is YOU, and so we concentrate on giving you the tools that help your ideas to flow. Our users confirm that this works brilliantly!
