It is time to celebrate here at Inkitt, because we are now home to a community of one million members! This is a huge milestone in our mission to help every aspiring author achieve their dreams and to open up imaginative worlds for readers across the globe.
Through the passion of our storytellers, the strength of our communities and the shared belief that every author should have an equal chance to succeed in publishing, Inkitt has grown into an international platform dedicated to the joys of fiction. We are and always will be committed to keeping our platform completely free of charge and focussing on what matters most – the happiness of our writers and our readers.
As our CEO Ali Albazaz reflects, ‘there is nothing like having a dream and seeing it materialise into a vibrant, creative reality. It would not have been possible without the loyalty of our talented users, and we are so grateful to you all. I can still remember waking up at 4:30am to help Inkitt’s very first user upload her novels to the platform one by one. I am overjoyed with the progress we are making, and the literary careers we are helping.’
We are overwhelmed with gratitude towards our fellow fiction lovers who have helped us forge this creative family, and we are buzzing with excitement for the future.
What does 1 million mean to us?
