CONNECTING READERS AND WRITERS.
PUTTING BOOKS IN THE HANDS OF STUDENTS.
INKPEN grows from a love of stories and books. INKPEN values building strong bridges across cultures; opening doors for real diversity and inclusion in the literary and cultural arts; reading as a way of nurturing a healthy democracy and literate society; writing and storytelling that furthers empathy and understanding; and meeting in libraries for engagement and learning. We believe books have the power to change a life.

Breena Clarke on writing fiction:
"I nourish myself by undertaking research to uncover details about daily life for my characters. But for this writing tool to be successful, I have to begin by imagining how a human being lives in the moments I've constructed because a novel is a composition of moments just as a play is a composition of beats, small actions."
-Author of Angels Make Their Hope Here, Stand the Storm, and River, Cross My Heart
