What is Ellipsus?

Ellipsus will make it easier to write, edit, and publish together. We’re starting with a collaborative text editor, but we have big plans for 2024 and beyond.

What features are you working on?

So far, we’ve built the basics of text editing, collaborating, drafting, and merging. Next up, we’ll be working to add more organizational features (e.g., folders). Visit our ideas board if you want to vote on upcoming feature ideas or add your own.

Who are you people?

Ellipsus was founded by John and Rex: co-founders, writers, and partners for more than a decade. They live in Berlin with two dachshunds and a ton of books. Ellipsus was born from the drama and difficulty of trying to write a novel together. They’re building Ellipsus in Europe with Fuad, Vincent, Orne, Kate, and Karol.

What’s your stance on generative AI?

We’re not fans, to put it mildly.

Are you trying to steal my work?

Nope! In fact, ensuring that creators own their work is core company value. We want to make it easier to write, edit, and publish together so that creators can be credited (and eventually compensated) accordingly.

How do I get early access?

We're opening our beta in May 2024. Just head to to sign up and start writing!

How do I share my feedback?

There are lots of ways to share your feedback!

When will you launch?

We want to get as many writers using Ellipsus by the end of the summer—but we’ll only “launch” launch when we know we’ve built something people really, really love.
