Prose Gold is our premium monthly subscription option. We are a business, and businesses need to make money, for better or for worse. We hope you'll read this page and consider our philosophy around subscriptions and monetization. Further, we hope you'll find it refreshing in an internet landscape beholden to advertisers.
No Advertising, Period.
We absolutely detest advertising. Advertisers and their goons (our competitors) are dominating the internet and hijacking our minds. We are disgusted by sites and apps that sell your data to advertisers. Whether you subscribe to Gold or not, we will never share your data with advertisers or anyone else. We use Google AdSense to run ads on Prose and soon we'll be offering publishers the option to run sponsored posts. We really don't want to be running any ads at all; but we internet users are accustomed to free apps. The reality is, no app is free. If you are not paying for an app, then you are the product for someone else who is. We don't like pandering to advertisers, and we refuse to use the data you supply to run targeted ads. Gold is the way out, for all of us. By paying a monthly subscription, you can support Prose and our mission to breathe authenticity into social media, without becoming a commodity for advertisers. With Gold, we won't show you ads, we won't show you sponsored posts, we'll only show you real shit, by real writers. Fuck ads. If you agree, please subscribe.
We believe in supporting creators. We allow authors to monetize their content by setting a price on their work. With Gold, you automatically unlock everything on Prose, and in so doing you support your fellow authors. We share a portion of our profits with our authors directly, and via monthly writing challenges.
Like reading and/or writing in a font other than Garamond? We hear you. With Gold, you can change your reading font as well as your publishing font. When you select a reading font, you'll override any publishing font the author may have chosen.
Dark Mode. (Coming Soon)
If you like browsing in Dark Mode as much as we do, you'll be excited to learn that's coming your way. Read late into the night with a beautiful Gold-exclusive dark mode.
Your Place, your Portal. (Coming Soon)
Portals are a way to create separate corners of Prose. Soon you'll be able to create your own portals, and manage them how you see fit. Invite and manage portal members, set the portal to private, create your own version of Prose.
