Thanks for the mention in your steem news pennsif. And noticing our new staff member @carolkean. I'm excited to have her on-board as she's a long term active steemian, prolific with comment engagement, and a former editor at a sci-fi magazine. She's perfect for what is developing into one of the best steem creative Writing hive communities 🙂

It looks like The Ink Well has got off to a good start. Looking forward to seeing how it develops.
