To get you in the mood here is the first panel from the first page of art from the first piece we have accepted: Magpie by Richard McAuliffe with art by Mark Chilcott.
The days may be getting colder and the nights may be getting longer but Halloween marks the start of the holiday season for many. It can be so much fun, but there are so many choices to make: where to go, what to do, what to wear, trick or treat?
We are looking for writers and artists - independently or as teams.
Submissions should be:
- stories on the theme of Choices
- 2-10 pages long
- Black and White or Greyscale
- Scripts should be submitted by 31st of December.
- Art will need to be complete by March 2009
There is no payment for inclusion in Layer Zero, you should think of it as an opportunity to showcase your work, but you retain all rights and may reuse the work elsewhere.
Stories in Layer Zero may also work as "pilot episodes" for longer works that we could expand into full length books if they are successful. If you would like to know more about this before you make a submission please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cover art for Choices, along with a very special story will be provided by the extremely talented Scott James. This collection will also feature the very first episode of Butterflies and Moths, by Corey Brotherson, a gritty magic realist tale about balance and burdens.
Contact Nic Wilkinson by email at email@example.com for more info or to make a submission.
