Hey Ryan! Super honored to see you feature my publication in your article. I created the publication to help lift other writers from obscurity, especially new writers (who I've also noticed tend to lack confidence in themselves). I couldn't have said it better myself.
I saw that tweet too and I must say, I was incredibly disappointed by the arrogant nature of the quote. There's nothing wrong with projecting confidence, but projecting confidence at the expense of others is something I would never tolerate either.
Love what you're doing, sir. Keep it up.
