Stormzy and the #Merky collective have time and time again proved that they are bringing something fresh and special to the scene. Now, Stormzy has taken to his social media to announce yet another amazing venture.

#Merky books is his brand new publishing imprint in collaboration with Penguin Random House. #Merky Books will publish fiction, non-fiction and poetry all curated by Stormzy. The first release under the company will see the publishing of Stormzy’s very own autobiography entitled Rise Up: The #Merky Journey So Far which is set for release on November 1st.

“We 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.”
