New Community For Writers - Inkwell

There's a new community for writers trying to stretch its wings, and you know how I love community endeavors!~ I've invited Buffy Andrews, one of the founding members, here to spread the word. Please consider joining and getting involved (and feel free to friend me!).

Introducing Inkwell.ning.com

When virtual friends Jessica Milar and Sheri Larsen asked me to help develop an online community for new and established writers and artists, I couldn’t say no. As a struggling writer, I know how difficult and frustrating and lonely the road can be. And if I can help a fellow traveler, I’m happy to do it.

One of our goals is to provide new writers and artists (including illustrators, web comic creators and graphic artists) the resources and support they need to be successful.

We also want Inkwell to be a community for established writers and artists, a place for them to promote their work and help others while continuing to learn and grow their skills. My skills as an editor have helped me become a better writer, I think, and I’ve seen this in the editors and copy editors who work for me.

What I love most about Inkwell is that the site belongs to those who join. Its success depends on each member participating, spreading the word and growing the site through engaging groups and interactive features. We hope that those who join will not only find the resources they need but a caring community of writers and artists who are dedicated and passionate about their craft.

Please, visit the site, join and let’s help each other do the best work of our lives. I have met so many gifted writers and artists since beginning my journey, including Casey who so graciously allowed this post. I’m confident that if we work together, we can accomplish some amazing things.

Want to know more about Buffy? Here's her bio:

"I am Assistant Managing Editor of Features and Niche Publications at the York Daily Record/Sunday news in York, Pa. I lead a team that produces a glossy women's magazine, a high-end home magazine, a daily lifestyle section, weekly entertainment magazine as well as a variety of niche products, everything from non-fiction books to specialty Web sites to vodcasts and videos. I write for middle-grade and young adult."
