Project InkPossible is a dream finally come true for Wise Ink. When we began our beloved blog back in 2012, reaching young writers was a distant goal for the future. Now, with the growth of our blog audience and startup creative agency, the future is now. We're making good on pursuing our other passion: teens who write.
This summer, we're publishing an anthology by 15 teens in the Twin Cities and awarding each a $100 scholarship. The idea is to get out in the community and reach young authors & book lovers and empower their passion with a hands-on publishing experience.
Aside from becoming published authors, our teen writers will also be able to participate in a book planning meeting where they’ll get to collaborate on the arrangement and placement of each piece in their book, decide on the cover (being illustrated by the nationally-known Kevin Cannon), and they'll even weigh in on the book's format.
We. Are. Excited.
We'll be ending the contest March 13th and start informing teens this spring. Stay tuned for more updates on the announcement of selected teens, the book launch party date and venue, and purchase information once the book is released. All proceeds earned from sales will go toward funding the program.
