I'm relieved to hear that Patreon has backed off its plan! Therefore, I'm going to tell all of you that I have a Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/JulietteWade), which supports and coordinates as a workshop with my YouTube show, Dive into Worldbuilding. The show talks about lots of different topics like economics, bathrooms, colorism, and birds, and features guest authors each month. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn3l9gt-Gz_ZyirZ9SfOgfQ
Summaries of previous discussions can be found here: https://dive-into-worldbuilding.blogspot.com/
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our Code of Conduct.
