Would this platform work for my needs?

Hello, we are creating a user-generated content business or
“Publication”. We currently use Wordpress for Furzly.com.

We are in dire need of finding a better solution for us and our
a growing number of writers.

Our goal, to have the functionality of Medium.com or Vocal.media to
streamline the content creation process. This includes all sorts of
notifications on different levels.

Examples:
When a story is published to notify the author.
When a story is submitted for review to notify the editor’s etc

Any thoughts would be appropriated.

I’m eager to learn more.

Best,
-John Cantlin
