Hello 👋

I’m Matt Brindley, founder of fresh.ink.

fresh.ink is a small team based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In its very first phase, fresh.ink is a platform that helps authors get feedback on their writing by connecting them to beta readers.

We joined the writing community by hosting a literary contest (winners to be announced Feb 3, 2020 - not long now!) The contest was a way for us to introduce ourselves, give a little back to the writing community, and test and refine our platform.

As our contest nears its conclusion, we're hard at work on the next phase of fresh.ink. Inline with our vision of helping unheard voices find an audience, we've begun exploring using the fresh.ink platform to match work published by small presses to potential readers.

We have deep-felt respect for the publishing industry. The published authors, agents and editors we've consulted with and follow online made it crystal clear: it takes decades of experience and the supportive shoulders of many giants to succeed in publishing.

A little more about me
I’m a product and software developer who loves a good book. Born and raised in the UK, I moved to Boston in 2010 where I met my wife, a writer and fellow book lover. I am a co-founder of Litmus, a software company that empowers email marketers by giving them the tools to test campaigns before they go out the door. Now in its thirteenth year, Litmus has grown to 160 people with offices in Cambridge, San Francisco, and London. While I remain involved with the company, I am excited to take what I’ve learned about the power of iterative testing to the publishing world.
