Why Words Work

For reading. For writing. For words.

About me


Hey there! My name is Emma Rose Hollands. Lovely to meet you.

I am a BA Creative Writing Graduate from The University of Winchester, as well as a writing intern for video game company Enigmatic Studios. Currently, I am working on my first novel – shh, don’t tell anyone – and do my best to drown myself in the craft of writing be it novels, short fiction, poetry, articles, book reviews, interviews and more.

Whatever shape they take, stories hold power. They are a reflection of us and who we are – of our society and who we could be. To share my passion for literature, language, writing and story-telling is the reason why I started this blog. And I hope it’s something that we can share together.

So get ready to read, write, laugh and nerd about literature with me.
(And don’t worry, there’s plenty of tea to go around.)
