About The Inkling

Started at the end of 2012 by a group of recent Cambridge graduates, The Inkling is an online arts and culture magazine and annual print publication that encourages a personal and accessible approach to young, intelligent writing. The Inkling has published two collections of essays (the most recent of which was described by Foyles as ‘a quality of discussion to aspire to’) and is currently working on a third, to be published in 2016, and sold at TATE and the ICA, among other stockists. Over the past few years the editors of The Inkling have been honoured to be invited to talk at several arts and literary festivals (Port Eliot Festival, Penzance Literary Festival, Brainchild Festival, Cambridge’s Festival of Ideas) and have hosted our own successful programme of talks in venues around London, sponsored by Sipsmith.
