What’s Society of Young Inklings all About?

Society of Young Inklings supports youth writers, ages 8-18, as they move the big ideas from their hearts and heads onto the page. “When I was young and filling notebooks with stories, I wanted someone to take my dreams seriously,” says Naomi Kinsman, Founder and Executive Director. “Now, I have the privilege of granting wishes like my own by pairing youth writers with professionals who provide artistic mentorship and with our publishing team who deliver real-world publishing opportunities.”

Boost your writing momentum, set goals, and collaborate with Inklings mentors and peers in the Drafting Workshop. You'll choose your project and draft with courage and commitment at a pace that fits your life and creative style.

 

At Society of Young Inklings, we connect youth writers with professional authors and mentors.

“When my students submitted their work to the Society of Young Inklings contest, I expected a form letter, but was surprised instead that Inklings mentors  carefully read the writing and gave each student specific feedback that was really helpful and encouraging.”
