Join author/illustrator, Daria Peoples-Riley and author, Naomi Kinsman for a hands-on workshop designed to help you develop an idea for your Inklings Book Contest submission.

What is the Inklings Book Contest? It’s a publishing opportunity for youth writers, grades 3-9, and everyone who submits receives feedback from a pro. The submission deadline is March 15, 2020. If you’re a youth writer, or you know one, please share the news!

 In this workshop, you’ll:

  1. Brainstorm character ideas using games and a storyboarding activity
  2. Watch Daria and Naomi refine and revise ideas in real-time
  3. Refine your own ideas, aiming for at least one idea for a story or poem to submit to the Inklings Book Contest


All right… let’s get started… 🎉
