The Emerge Anthologies

“I was so excited to be a part of these anthologies! It was such a fun and rewarding experience!” – Willa B. Smith

Willa has two pieces in the second volume of the Emerge anthology, a short story titled, Dreamkeeper, and a poem titled, Invincible. You can buy Emerge here.

Emerge: Youth Voices in Ink (Volume 2- Issue 3: Summer 2011)
Synopsis- Emerge: Youth Voices in Ink is an anthology of poems, plays and creative prose written by Austin-area students, grades 7-12. All student authors have participated in Badgerdog Literary Publishing’s creative writing workshops and have developed their craft by working with some of Austin’s most talented writers.


“[about Invincible by Willa Smith] Shake your head in recognition as Willa Smith captures in three stanzas the crippling self-doubt that has plagued every honest writer who ever lived.”

– Aaron Teel, editor of Art Pros Magazine and The Denton Record Chronicle




Emerge: Youth Voices in Ink (Summer 2012)

Willa did write two pieces in this anthology, but unfortunately Badgerdog Literary Publishing stopped the Youth Voices in Ink series and merged with APLA to form education services just prior to the official release of this anthology. Currently, this book is not available for purchase, but we will let you know if it becomes available in the future.
