App launches to support the creative writing of people with aphasia

City (UK)
University of London researchers and people with aphasia have created the MakeWrite app to support users in producing creative writing, including poetry. Drawing on the themes of constrained creativity and ‘Blackout Poetry', MakeWrite enables users to choose a piece of text, redact or erase some of the text, arrange the remaining words, and then share the text with friends or via social media. The app is currently available for free download at the Apple Store.
