Inside these pages you will find magical nights, a mischievous elf, an alien queen, dragons, mystery, and most of all, inspiring words filled with courage, hope, and resilience.

Society of Young Inklings’ thirteenth annual Inklings Book anthology features stories and poems by youth authors in grades three through nine. Each piece is paired with a letter from the youth’s author-mentor who guided them through a personalized revision, plus an interview about the experience. The result is a literary feast-part celebration of spectacular writers and their powerful voices, part practical revision guide. Whether you’re looking for a thumping good read, inspiration for your own writing, or both, you’ve stumbled across the just-right book.
