Emrys builds a vibrant literary home for writers and readers to celebrate diverse voices and the power of words.
Help Support Young Writers
Support emerging young writers with a contribution to our inaugural publication of The Best of Word Up – 2018-2019! Emrys partners with Read Up each year to celebrate young adult and middle grade books and authors, encouraging and building a love of reading. Last year we launched an annual writing contest called Word Up for young people ages 10 - 18. What better way to encourage these young authors than to publish their stories! We plan to share their stories in a publication that will be available free of charge to each participant at this year’s Read Up event on October 19. You can help make this possible with your donation to support these young writers.
