Emblazon artwork

Emblazon is a blog written by a collection of indie and traditionally published authors who care about producing high quality stories for kids, with a particular focus on middle schoolers, those kids ages 11 to 14 (tweens) in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.

The purpose of Emblazon is to celebrate tween literature and to draw attention to this subgenre, interact with other enthusiasts whether child or adult, and encourage new writers.

The list of contributing authors is impressive.
