It is our belief that inspiration strikes everywhere. Be it a popular dance on Tik Tok, or something more personally powerful, if you can’t stop thinking about something you’ve experienced, write about it and see what happens! Inspired Ink is a place to share and receive credit for expressing what you find meaningful, and in this scary time of social distancing, sharing art through the internet has more power than ever before.
If you’ve never engaged in creative writing outside of school and don’t know where to start, take a look at our prompts pages and expand on some of those story-starters in freewriting exercises. You can also just take a pencil and write what you are thinking, what you are excited about, something you saw recently that caught your attention. It is easier said than done, but try not to be hung up on what is ‘good’ writing and what is ‘bad’ writing. Inspired Ink not only offers a space to showcase teen creativity, it provides peer feedback and editing to those who submit writing.
Please consider emailing your writing and/or artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org! For more information, take a look at our Submissions page!
