Elegant Writing is a free WordPress blog theme created by Superb Themes. It serves excellently as a simple theme for writers and bloggers. Especially, you can use it like a magazine or newspaper.
The prominent characters of this theme are the Gutenberg compatibility and responsive design.
Besides the magazine platform with the clean, minimal and decent style as its name describes, it is extremely easy and ready to use. If you just start your simple personal blog, the adequate number of its basic features will be suitable for a beginner.
In conclusion, this is a super easy theme to use and set up for a beginner. You can use it as your own online magazine or newspaper to public your writing and media. Because it is a minimal-style theme, the design is clean, straightforward and well-organized for a reading purpose. There are few features to customize for a professional user, but I think it’s quite reasonable with those using blog for the first time.
In this theme, there is no recommended plugin. So if you know little about technology it may confuse you when you need to have more features. Lastly, I can't find the support for a free theme from the author so it may be a disadvantage when you need professional assistance.
