Every academic year high-need schools request a 916 Ink program, but are unable to afford one by themselves. The inaugural edition of our "Publishers' Club" will solve this problem, helping us reach as many as 300 additional students through up to 10 new programs we couldn't otherwise fund. The club will consist of our first 50 donors who give $25 or more per month, creating a $15,000 annual fund that will be leveraged along with grants and other funding sources to make these new programs possible.


Members of the Publishers' Club will also receive exclusive 916 Ink swag! 

  • Hardbound 1st Edition copy of 916 Ink's 100th Anthology

  • One 916 Ink publication mailed each quarter

  • Mistah Complaina's "Writer for Life" Publishers Pen 

  • 916 Ink Writers Journal


We depend on the generosity of individuals to provide the critical bridge funding that makes many of our programs possible. Usually, these are the schools that need 916 Ink the most. Every cent of your donation goes to helping the children at these schools discover the power of their voice through creative writing, and they would not have that opportunity without you.
