Make stories on a platform
tailor-made for publishers.

Build a home for your content.

Atavist has everything you need to launch your publication. Write and design multimedia projects, make a website for your stories, brand content, sell access to work, track success with analytics, and more. We designed our plans for publishers to recognize the needs of organizations, whatever the size. Learn more about Atavist for journalists, brands, non-profits, and schools.

Shine a spotlight on your stories.

Whether you are publishing longform articles, releasing monthly issues, or putting out daily content, your website is where you can highlight the great work you do. Story blocks make it possible to showcase an array of projects, draw attention to your newest report, and group together related stories. Experiment with different layouts — lists, grids, heroes, squares — in an easy-to-update interface.

Control your distribution.

Here at Atavist, we think a lot about how organizations can best display, curate, and share content across the web. Choose how and where readers access your work: as a stand-alone post, on your Atavist website, in Facebook Instant Articles, or as part of your website's existing ecosystem. And if you want to monetize your content, sell story-by-story, by subscription, or put articles behind a flexible paywall.

Publishers know to use Atavist.

Publishing our award-winning The Atavist Magazine on the Atavist platform helped us develop the tools you get to use. And every day, amazing projects are made by our growing community of writers, editors, and readers. Among us are world-class publications like The California Sunday Magazine and Rhapsody Magazine, hardworking non-profits like Conservation International and the Pulitzer Center, students from around the globe, libraries and archives, journalists and photographers, and so many more. We believe that digital storytelling is a craft and are proud to offer tools that help our users make stunning work.
