Dive into the Inklings Book and be swept into adventure, time travel, a fantastical forest, and even the quiet of a moonlit night. The stories and poems included in this year’s anthology are filled with courage, hope, empathy, and joy.

Society of Young Inklings’ fourteenth 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 writer’s author-mentor, who guided them through a personalized revision, plus an interview about the experience. The result is this extraordinary collection of stories and poems showcasing the power of youth voices and the craft of creative writing and revision. Whether you’re looking for an excellent read, inspiration for your own writing, or both, you’ve found the just-right book.
