Society of Young Inklings is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering youth writers, ages 8-18. “When I was young and filling notebooks with stories, I wanted someone to take my dreams seriously,” says Naomi Kinsman, Founder and Executive Director. “Now, I have the privilege of granting wishes like my own by pairing youth writers with professionals who provide artistic mentorship and with our publishing team who deliver real-world publishing opportunities.”
Support Grit, Empathy, and Vision through Creative Writing
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.
