What if you could be a published author, right now? The Inklings Book Contest offers young writers in grades 1-8 the opportunity to publish a short story or poem in our annual anthology. Winners will also receive a two-session one on one mentorship with an author who will help them revise and polish their winning submission. This is a chance to take your writing to the next level.
What is the Inklings Book?
The Inklings Book is an anthology which will release in the beginning of June 2014, featuring short stories and poems by up to 20 young authors in grades 1-8. This is the sixth annual Inklings Book.
Who is the contest for?
The Inklings Book Contest is for young writers who are ready to be treated like a pro, which will increase your confidence and further your writing skills.

How are the winners chosen?
Up to ten winners will be chosen from grades 1-4 and up to ten from grades 5-8. Winners will be chosen by a committee of Young Inklings in collaboration with Inklings staff. The committee will look for writing submissions that have a strong point of view and for writers who are committed to the revision process.
What will I win?
Winners will receive a two-session editorial mentorship–where their mentor will lead them through a specific revision process. Each winner’s revised story or poem will be printed in the anthology that will be distributed on Amazon, other locations and in e-book form on the iBookstore.
