Inkpop is a writing community for teens and those who write for teens, that bubbles up the best work for a chance to be read by a HarperCollins Publisher with the goal of being published, or as Funny Garbage likes to call it: crowd-sourced publishing.
Writers can post their books, short stories, book ideas, letters and poetry. From the pick list, the Inkpop community chooses their favorite pieces and has the option give to constructive criticism in the comments area. The more people like the stories, the higher up they are on the pick list chart. At the end of the month, Editors from HarperCollins review the top five writing projects in fiction, short writing and poetry. .
Community members are also ranked based on the constructive criticism they give writers (critics) and for the ability to spot great writing early on and place them on their pick lists (trendsetters).
FG created an ecosystem that fosters quality writing, constructive feedback and a supportive community.
