The kingdom of books

More than just a website. Home.

Free forever

Belletristica is completely free, and it always will be. We accept voluntary donations to help pay the bills, and we earn a bit by advertising books written by the community.

Community Driven

Our users actively help us to build Belletristica. We regularily have votes in our city hall, to decide over new features, contents, and rules together.


Belletristica is a passion project. We don't have any investors, and we're not dependent on anyone. This allows us to always stay true to our principles.

A safe haven

This is a place of order and justice. Trolls don't stand a chance, and those who can't be bothered to behave must leave our kingdom.


By default, you are stealthy like a ninja here. Nobody can see you, except for when you actively post something, like messages, texts or comments.

Constant development

There will always be new stuff to find here. We regularily publish new features and contents, or add new events.


Next Update: 2.0.18

Penny's Chamber of Commerce

Belletristicans with commercially published books will finally get a nice little place to advertise their goods, completely free of charge.

Making a living out of writing is hard enough as it is, so we hope this will give you a little edge.

To our roadmap
Progress: 60%


Experiences from our Community

What our users have to say:

  • Tensei - Level 15
    I've only just started using it, it looks like the best site for all my requirements so far. I've been looking for something like this for a while, perfect for a casual poem writer like myself.

  • Niyasa - Level 3
    Belletristica is the most amazing writing website ever! I love the quests and fantasy related things!

  • eric_river - Level 4

    It's a site with lots of heart, a budding paradise.

    The site design is beautiful, the people are all nice,

    it's only getting started, and it's quite a lot of fun.

    Everyone should check out the adventure they've begun.

  • Zeplinyato - Level 6

    It is overall the best writing website I have ever seen. Even though it is mainly German, there is a big portion of users and all of the staff that speak English. The interface needs a little bit of cleaning up because of some language glitches, but for the most part, everything is up and running like it should, if not better! You can write your books with no restrictions, put tags and genres on them so readers can find stories they might be interested in, read other people's stories, chat with other people through the English Pub or groups, and there are even a couple mini-games you can play! (Just don't get too competitive, the games aren't designed to be played like that.) The staff is responsive and easy to talk to, and there are plenty of people who will read your books or will have books you like! If you don't use Belletristica, you are SERIOUSLY missing out.

  • AnnaEmilia - Level 10
    ich finde Belletristica gut, weil jeder der einen Beitrag, eine Geschichte, einen Roman oder Reime selbst erdacht hat, diese ohne großen Aufwand hier auf Belletristica posten kann. - Er hat die Möglichkeit, seine Texte umzuändern oder in Kapiteln zu ergänzen, ohne großen Aufwand. Auch andere Interessenten und Leser können die Werke der Autoren lesen, bewerten, ihm eine Nachricht hinterlassen etc. Dies trägt auch dazu bei, das man sich austauschen kann. Weiter so

  • 𝕬𝖑𝖕𝖍𝖆ɐɥdl∀ɒʜq|AคɭקђคᏗᏝᎮᏂᏗคlphค - Level 18

    It's really fun for those who like to read, write, and support each other! You can also chat with people normally if you're not of the first two options. I'd give it a 4.5/5 in a rating scale and put it on my recommendations list.

  • HighHopes - Level 14

    That.....this space is for YOU only, meet new friends! Explore, read and love books! I have to say.....this place is great and creative.

  • •⊹★ⲧⲏⲉ ⲱⲁⲛⲇⲉꞅⲉꞅ★⊹• - Level 9

    It is definitely a very interesting and unique platform and community, and I hope it will grow because there is so much within it that I think a lot of people would enjoy.

  • Gem - Level 10

    A writing site perfect for writers. Belletristica has features that encourage writing, reading, and social skills. Plus, Belletristica being designed like a game is amazing!

  • weepingwillow - Level 6

    Belletristica is an amazing place for authors and readers! Like Wattpad, it has the same author-reader fan relationship, and has fun for everyone.

  • local-lovebug - Level 10

    Belletristica is home to a variety of authors from all walks of life, and so hosts a variety of works with different levels of experience and writing styles, and despite (or maybe because of this) the close-knit community is always there to inspire.

  • Abe_Sonthwal - Level 12

    This site lacks in a few customization options for writing, but that being said...everything else is fantastic! You guys have a great community, interface, style, and clearly show a lot of dedication to the website. I'm blown away by the depth and RPG elements which I've never seen on another writing platform. Keep up the fantastic work, you guys are amazing!

  • Meria - Level 47

    Ich wurde herzlich empfangen und habe neben vielen guten Geschichten auch lauter lustige Nebensachen gefunden, die einen extra antreiben, jeden Tag die Seite zu besuchen. Nichts ist ein Muss, alles ist ein Wollen. Niemand treibt einen...

    Die Seite ist wunderbar aufgemacht, immer wieder gibt es kleinere Events, die einem entweder die Zeit vertreiben oder neue Dinge entdecken lässt.

    Ein schönes Layout lässt die Seite außerdem gemütlich wirken.

    Für mich gibt es nichts negatives an dieser Seite auszusetzen, auch wenn ich erst wenige Monate hier bin.

  • Pororo - Level 8

    That don't think about it too much. Just try it. You will feel good afterward. This site is for you.
