Our Programs

Supported by hundreds of youth volunteers, INKspire has established many programs that provide accessible programming to youth artists across Canada.

What we have accomplished so far









Current Program

Write to Discover

INKspire’s “Write to Discover” online workshops provide hands-on experience and expert guidance for youth interested in creative writing. Each session covers a different writing style, including short stories, poetry, and screenwriting.

Our program runs twice a year, with one session in the spring/summer and another in the fall/winter. Each session lasts for six consecutive weeks, with one workshop per week. With expert guidance and hands-on experience in a variety of creative writing genres, you’ll gain valuable skills and insights that will last a lifetime.

INKspire Publication

INKspire is home to a publishing team of writers and editors who develop content for INKspire’s publishing platform year-round. From collaborative brainstorm sessions to individual editorial feedback, each article goes through our editorial process before it is published on INKspire’s website. Through the process, writers and editors both practice their skills and create work they’re proud to share on our platform.
