The Kindling has caretakers. A caretaker is responsible for a week's worth of posts. While the writer of a post is ultimately responsible for whatever he or she writes, a caretaker serves as an extra set of eyes on the community's work as a whole.
To be a caretaker at The Kindling, a person must also be a writer.
The following people have agreed to serve as caretakers in Season 1 of The Kindling:
- Jamie Hanson
- Jessica McCaleb
- Michael Clancy
