Applications are closed!
Ink City, while being very plot-driven, is mostly laid-back in terms of applications and acceptance.
Our applications don’t require a specific word count, but a medium amount is preferable. We need to be sure that you know your character well enough to play them, but you aren’t required to write their whole biography!
We judge based on how well you know the character, but good grammar is extremely encouraged as well. We probably won’t accept you if there’s too many spelling errors, as that just shows that you don’t care.
Be aware though there are kinds of characters that are not appropriate for the City or its community, even if they fit the criteria. Before applying a character make sure to double check the RULES!
If there’s a problem with your application (which in most cases, there won’t be), we’ll be sure to reply to it as PENDING, and explain what needs to be fixed so you can try again. If your application has too many problems and needs massive revision, we’ll REJECT, but not without giving reasoning behind it. But don’t be discouraged! Rejected apps can try again a week afterward.
Fill out the sheet below, and good luck! We hope to see you in Ink City soon!

Let us know what the location is you wish for your character to bring into the City by telling us what it is, along with a picture or description of it.
