Inked Voices is a platform built for that process. We’re a place for writers who want a community of support and learning while sweating in the trenches of drafting, revising and rewriting.
With Inked Voices, writing groups and workshops can collaborate intimately despite distance and strange schedules. We are not a giant critique forum, but a collection of small workshopping communities.
If you’re looking for a better way to run your writing group, help finding your own small community, or a tool for workshopping in your class or MFA program, we would be glad to help you.
