In a nutshell, Everything2 is...
A Place to Read
E2 offers you a huge amount of original writing of many kinds. You'll find informative articles on just about anything you can imagine, but you'll also find humor, poetry, fiction, opinion, criticism, personal experiences and other things that are hard to categorize. Articles are linked together deliberately by authors, and by readers passively browsing. Just by following links, you are contributing to the integration of the database.
A Place to Write
You can become a member of the community and publish your own writing. Unlike some Web publishing venues, you retain all rights on what you share with us and the world.
A Place to Discuss and Socialize
E2 lets you interact with the highly diverse community of people who write the Everything2 content. You can give them feedback on their work and receive feedback on your own. You can message others or chat in real time. You can join groups of members that share your special interests.
This is an unusual and vibrant community where you might be exposed to ideas, styles, viewpoints, personalities, suggestions about music, movies and other art forms, and other kinds of inspiration that you may not find in one place anywhere else.
Beware, though, the addiction potential is high!
