What is inkPageant?

We want to help writers improve their craft and reach their goals. Many authors and aspiring writers are willing to help each other by sharing experiences and advice on their blogs. Finding a useful post on a specific writing topic isn't always easy, but with inkPageant's growing database, we can help point you in the right direction.

Think of it as a search engine for writing blogs—by writers, for writers.

Ink Pageant has a few other purposes: you can share recommended reading or sell your books through your profile page, announce book signings, highlight conferences and other events, post interviews with authors/agents/editors, and share book or even movie reviews. These posts will be displayed in front of an interested audience, benefitting them and bringing traffic to your blog.

Not a blogger? No worries. This website is committed to enriching and benefiting the writing community. Give credit to the author and you can submit posts from blogs that you find useful.

To find out how you can join our parade of blog posts, check out our registration page and read our submission guidelines. If you have recommendations on how we can better serve the writing community, feel free to contact us.

See you in the parade!
