Is This the End of Amazon Storywriter? Sure as Hell is, Compadre!

by munchman

Way back in 2015, Amazon made the inception of Amazon Storywriter a major deal with full press coverage. 

Last week, purely by accident, we learned of Storywriter’s demise (as well as Storybuilder’s) in what probably is the lowest key way possible, via a new Amazon Studios FAQ that feeds us this very disappointed info between “What is Amazon Studios” and a question about what visitors can do to support Amazon Studios now that it no longer is making any newbie product:

Why will Storywriter and Storybuilder no longer be available after June 30, 2019?

At Amazon, we are always reinventing ourselves and looking for ways to become even more efficient. While Storywriter and Storybuilder will no longer be available after June 30, 2019, you can still continue to enjoy great original content on Prime Video.

What will happen to my documents on Storywriter after June 30, 2019?

Amazon Storywriter documents will no longer be available after June 30, 2019. Please access your dashboard to export and download your projects before June 30, after which time you will no longer be able to access your account. Please contact us if you have additional questions.

What will happen to my corkboards on Storybuilder after June 30, 2019?

Amazon Storybuilder corkboards will no longer be available after June 30, 2019. Please access your corkboards and use the Print-Friendly view in the Manage section to print out your projects before June 30, after which time you will no longer be able to access your account. Please contact us if you have additional questions.

Amazon Studios is no longer accepting submissions, but I have a script, mini-bible, or video that I would like to submit. What are my next steps?

While we will no longer accept new submissions, there are other options….

Thanks for all this wonderful support, Amazon. We won’t forget how you stuck it to us!
