An Asset In It’s Own Ranks

Ruben, along with his guests, is creating discourse that serves amateur writers, professional writers, and non-writers alike. I find myself listening to these episodes both when I want a break from writing and when I want to be inspired to write. His guests reflect a range of people at different stages in their writing and that helps me in that it reminds me that I am doing work, I have done work, and there’s more work to be done. Lastly, as a Latinx person, I need to know there is a community out there.
