We know all writers need acknowledgment and encouragement. What better way to challenge yourself as a writer than to strive to get your work published? Society of Young Inklings offers publishing programs that follow the traditional editorial process of publishing a book. Some less formal publishing opportunities are also available here on our website.



The Inklings Book Writing Contest

What if you could be a published author, right now? Our Inklings Book Contest offers young writers in grades 1-8 the opportunity to publish a short story or poem. Once your story is accepted, you will have the chance to mentor with a professional writer for two one-on-one sessions. The result? Your story or poem in print! Read about this year’s contest.


Your Name in Ink: Novel Publishing Program

This 6-9 month program requires discipline, motivation and the ability to work independently. Upon acceptance, you will be paired with a professional writer who will mentor you through the process of revising, editing, formatting and publishing a book. Learn more.
