The world needs more women like you to tell their stories and share their words.
Because a woman’s words, when written, are truth made visible on paper. And your work, when published, is your creative ideas made unmissable. It is then that your ideas start spreading and reaching those who need them the most.
Your words, your voice, and your work matter.
The world needs what you know, what you’ve witnessed, the stories only you can tell, and the unique voice only you have. For that, you must write and make writing a practice. Then, you must develop as a writer and hone your craft. And also, you must get your words out there and share them.
That’s where The Inky Path comes in.
Founded by writer, award-winning literary translator, and creative entrepreneur Cigdem Kobu, The Inky Path offers a diverse collection of tools, resources, online programs, writing intensives, master classes, a vibrant membership community, and personalized consulting services to women nonfiction writers at all levels of experience.
