Grit, Empathy and Vision
When passionate youth mentor with talented pros, they not only grow as writers, but they develop core skills that affect every area of their lives. In Inklings programs, youth learn practical strategies for developing as artists, gain creative momentum, and tap into the power of their voices as they share their work with peers and a reading audience.
A Challenge for Every WriterWhether you’re looking for a self-serve online course, a short-term program with dedicated peers, or long-term individualized attention, there’s an Inklings program for you.
In the Your Name in Ink Program, professional writers mentor youth through a 6-9 month revision process which results in a printed or published book available through independent bookstores and other retailers.
Why online programs?
Online tools make it possible for busy authors and pros to work and connect with youth even if they don’t live in the same neighborhood. The added plus we didn’t even expect? Video conferencing and Google docs make collaboration even more comfortable for mentors and youth, upping focus, specificity of instruction, and growth. A win-win!
