Welcome to my Website!


Hi! I’m Emma Pass, author of dark, gritty fiction for young adults. My debut novel, ACID, won the North East Teenage Book Award and was picked by YALSA as a Top Ten Amazing Audiobook for 2015, and both ACID and my second novel, The Fearless, were nominated for the Carnegie Medal. The Fearless also won the 2016 Concorde Book Award. There’s more information about my books here.

When I’m not writing, I run workshops for writers of all ages, and offer a mentoring and critiquing service – you can find out more by clicking on the tabs above. I’ve been a Patron of Reading and a writer-in-residence for First Story, and along with Kerry Drewery, I’m co-organiser of the UKYA and Children’s Extravaganza. More about that here.

I’m represented by the brilliant Ella Kahn at Diamond, Kahn and Woods Literary Agency.

If there’s anything else you’d like to ask me, or if you’d like to enquire about a workshop, please get in touch!
