As many friendships between writers start, the friendship between Wishful Inkers members began with Camp NaNoWriMo. Being in a digital cabin together had up to twenty writers rooting each other on and striving for their complicated goals.

When NaNoWriMo ended, however, like children at the end of a birthday party, they didn’t want to go home. So they decided to keep going, and the idea of an anthology was born!

You would think an anthology would be enough, but the team took it one step further,  and the idea of the non profit was born! Every issue will feature a different charity, chosen by a featured member of Wishful Inkers. This featured member will also share a Q and A about themselves, their work, and the featured charity for that issue.


Would you like to donate a short story to the Wishful Inkers anthology? View our Rules and Regulations for Submissions as well as the Contributors Contract for details and everything you need to know before submitting your work.

Only 3 submissions will be chosen for each issue after a vote by our members.

What do you get by submitting a short story?

If we feature your submission in an anthology, you will be credited for your work, as well as where people can find you for more. You will also receive a free copy of the anthology in the form of an e-book!
