Stormzy has ventured to new heights. The rapper took to Instagram today to announce an unfamiliar collaboration between The #Merky Record label & publishing giant, Penguin Random House to bring us ‘#Merky Books’ which is a publishing imprint aiming to help young writers to become published authors.
Stormzy wrote in his Instagram post : “Super proud to announce our new venture #Merky Books, a publishing imprint in collaboration with Penguin Random House @penguinukbooksWe will be using this as a platform for young writers to become published authors, I know too many talented writers that don’t always have an outlet or a means to get their work seen and hopefully #Merky Books can now be a reference point for them to say “I can be an author” and for that to be a realistic and achievable goal. Reading and writing as a kid was integral to where I am today and I from the bottom of my heart can not wait to hear your stories, your poems, your novels, your sci-fis and then getting them out into the big wide world. Proper proud of this! We’ll be doing school competitions, taking entries and submissions and looking for writers as well but I’ll keep you posted! #Merky Books will also be offering a paid internship in 2019! The first book to be released under the imprint will be “Rise Up: The #MerkyJourney So Far” out November 1st and available for pre order now”
