Buckle up and explore the world through the eyes of twenty youth authors. This twelfth edition of the annual Inklings Book anthology features work by youth writers in grades three through nine. Inside these pages, you’ll be swept out to sea, travel through magical lands, experience mystery, magic, history, and the here and now. Most importantly, you’ll hear the beat of each writer’s unique heart. Each piece is paired with a letter from the youth’s author-mentor who guided the revision process. The Inklings Book 2020 is part literary feast, part practical revision guide-a book to be savored by readers and writers of all ages.
