Youth writers train their creativity.
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.”
How might Society of Young Inklings support you?
SYI is a registered nonprofit dedicated to providing programs to support a diversity of youth voices nationwide, particularly in high-need and underserved communities. We offer need-based scholarships, low-cost, and free programming.
