The INKreadables, episode 4: We're Not Afraid of Dragons!
Welcome to the INKreadables, season 1, episode 4.
This month, we discuss a 1974 essay by Ursula K. Le Guin, called Why Americans Are Afraid of Dragons. Along for the ride, were Rowena Harding-Smith, who you might remember from our Christmas special, and Andrew J. Savage, who will be joining us again shortly.
If you would like to join the discussion, do come and visit our community. Damian and I are always keen for new victims.

As a writer, finding the right community–the right tribe–makes all the difference.
For me, that’s the INKubator. I’m one of the admins there, and I have to say I’ve never been more proud of something I helped build, than I am of the INKubator.
We help each other improve, lovingly drown each other’s drafts in red ink, and help each other brainstorm.
But we’re more than a writing club. We’re a family. We root for each other as we submit pieces for various publication venues.
We cheer and join in victory dances when a piece is accepted. We support each other through the disappointment of the inevitable rejections.
We hang out, playing as hard as we work, and from the madness of our conversations, more stories are born.
As a community, we span the globe, with members from Asia, Australia, Europe and the US, so chances are there will be someone there if you should decide to drop in.
If we’re quiet, that’s because we’re writing.
