A wise person once said, “Write your name on the heart of a child.”
We hope to emblazon our stories there.
Emblazon is a collection of authors–some indie, some traditionally published–who strive to produce top-notch literature for kids. Our audiences range from fifth grade to young adult, but we have a particular focus on ages 11 to 14. Some call them upper middle grade; others call them low young adult. They’re somewhere in the middle and can lean either way. We call them Tweens.
We hope you’ll discover something new and worthwhile as you browse our website. Perhaps you’ll find a new favorite read–one of ours or one we’ve featured by others. You may find helpful teaching suggestions. Or new ideas to inspire reluctant readers. We hope our content stirs up some excitement about this wonderfully unique genre. But above all, we want to help teachers, librarians, and parents connect Tweens to excellent literature. And while we’re at it, perhaps our experiences might even prompt other writers to emblazon their own stories.
Got questions or comments or want to interact with our authors personally? We hang out on our Emblazon Facebook page, and we also sponsor a Tween Writers Facebook group for those interested in writing for tweens. We’d love to hear from you!
