Ink Splat Author Interviews

Each interview includes a writing challenge for youth, craft tips and strategies, and straight-from-the-heart FAQ with inspiring and talented kidlit authors.

Stories and Poems by our Inklings

Each year, our Inklings Book finalists are published on our blog. These stunning stories and poems are sure to delight and inspire you and your writers.

Idea Storm

Check out our free beloved game-packed workshop, designed to help writers collect a storm of ideas to take back to their writers' notebooks. From game to capturing their ideas and back to the next game, the hour-long workshop flies by. Don't miss the Idea Lab video at the end, which helps writers choose a few idea snippets to transform into a concept for their next writing piece—be it a story, a poem, a memoir, or the project of your choosing!

Inklings Book Contest

As an educator member, you can submit a class set of writing for our annual contest. The contest is open every year between January 15 and March 15. All applicants receive personalized, encouraging feedback. Winners mentor with an author to revise their stories or poems before publication. Finalists revise their work and then are invited to publish on our blog.
