About the competition
Join us in celebrating 10 years of Inkitt! Your incredible storytelling abilities are exactly what makes Inkitt so special, and we’d love to invite you to share your talents in our new contest.
Inkitt was founded 10 years ago as a website for founder Ali Albazaz and his friends and family to share stories and receive feedback. Since then, Inkitt has grown, evolved, and discovered so many amazing and talented writers, on a journey to fulfill our company mission of discovering hidden talents and turning them into globally successful authors.
We invite you to submit your story to our contest ‘Decade of Discovery’. Take your readers on a journey to uncover something new, whether it’s a new passion, a hidden talent or a unique perspective on the world. Let your imagination run wild and leave readers captivated and inspired!
Submit your novel for the chance to win a publishing contract, social media spotlights, and an Inkitt-certified badge!
