INKSPILL is Coming – Are You Ready?



On the 28th October INKSPILL 2017 will be underway. If this is your first year participating please read this post, if you have INKSPILLED before – please also read this post.

Our full programme will be announced on the 27th October.


These are buttons you can save and share to let the world know you are taking part. A link back to the site would be appreciated.

This year in addition to the Bookshop (where you can find links to Guest Writer books) I am opening a Library, which houses selected archived INKSPILL posts from the previous 4 years.

How to Participate

Here are the INKSPILL Guidelines:


  • Please FOLLOW awritersfountain blog to take part in the weekend.

  • LIKE the post when you have read it.

  • Spread the word of this FREE online writing retreat to others.


  • Dip in and out or accept you are on retreat for the entire weekend.

  • Please appreciate for the safety and wellbeing of all participants comments need to be approved, this will sometimes take a few hours.

  • You DO NOT have to share your writing publically. If it is a copyright/submission issue there is a CLOSED Facebook group you may join to share your work online. https://www.facebook.com/groups/194707454197891/

  • We encourage LINKS to be shared if you are posting work elsewhere on the web.


  • Whether you are taking part in real-time or after the event, we appreciate ‘likes’, you can like and post as a guest if you have no WordPress account or sign up, there is a world of great blogs to explore on the platform.

  • Ideally we aim to create the sense of community, it is valuable to see other people here for INKSPILL. We encourage you to leave comments, feedback and links on the feed.

    Guest writers cannot access the statistics for traffic they can see comments and feedback. They have worked hard to provide part of the programme for us this year and have given their time free of charge. I am sure they will appreciate thoughts and comments on posts too.


I offer links to purchasing books and promote events and websites associated with our Guest Writers in lieu of payment. I make no profit myself and am unable to offer payment in any way.

Created in 2013 and run annually, INKSPILL has been a free and non-profit making venture created & facilitated by Nina Lewis. Guest Writers have been used since 2014.
