Congratulations Tales for Tails #PawsForward Authors!


916 Ink and Red Rover’s collaboration, Tales for Tails #PawsForward, a collection of work that highlights the connection between humans and animals has come to fruition. We had the opportunity to see our new published authors read their pieces on Thursday, November 9th, and what a magical experience it was! The audience cheered and applauded as they shared their wonderful words, and each time one of our inkers finished reading, an infectious smile had worked its way across the Imaginarium.  These cherished moments could not be had without the support of funders like The Arata Brothers Trust, The Albert and Elaine Borchard Foundation, and of course, our dedicated volunteers. Congratulations to the Tales for Tails #PawsForward authors, and remember to #InkitUp!

Our Mission

916 Ink's mission is to empower children and youth through creative writing.

From a Parent

Testimonial from Jennifer Bacsafra

Good Morning,

I just wanted to say a heartfelt THANK YOU!!! to 916ink, Ms. Camagna, and Maestra Suarez for bringing the Youth Writers Program to the Language Academy of Sacramento. 

I have a daughter who has proudly displayed her certificate on the kitchen cabinet for all to see.  She doesn’t generally do this, so it demonstrated to us how proud of it she is.  Each week she said that she had a great time and her love of writing is even more encouraged.  We are looking forward to the book release!  Please let me know if you need any volunteer assistance with set up, clean up, etc.

Thanks again for all you do to help students and young minds grow!

With much appreciation,
Jennifer Bacsafra

Funder Feedback

“I cannot even begin to describe all that 916 Ink is and does, though I often find myself trying to describe it to friends and family because it is a great example of a program that does remarkable things in super creative ways.  I like to describe my best recollection of the Imaginarium, where there are tons of props of various and assorted subject matter, to stimulate the creativity in the young writers.”
