I've always had a love of storytelling but when I decided to seriously pursue being a writer I didn't know where to start.

I wrote a musical on pure instinct and didn't have the first idea how to find a collaborator, the ins and outs of self-producing or the mechanics of the business. Worst of all I had no mentors, women who looked like me to show the way. Slowly but surely I figured it out.

I started INKubator so talented writers behind me wouldn't have that stumbling block. So here it is. A resource database for aspiring writers to get educated and find help so they can focus on creating the beautiful stories that live inside them.

INKubator will grow as we do.
