The Cloudscape Comics Board has decided to give everyone an early Christmas present, and extend the Swan Song deadline until February 1st, 2017!
Realizing that we may not have time during the holiday season to go over all of the Swan Song submissions, and instead will be taking a look at them during the new year, Cloudscape has chosen to give all of you more time to finish or refine your Swan Song submissions. If you want to be part of our anthology and have an appropriate story idea, then there’s still time to send it in!
As we mentioned before, Swan Song will be a music-themed comic anthology communicating the beauty and power of music through numerous styles. This full-colour anthology will feature stories about the innumerable effects that music can have on human beings and how it can change our world in uncountable ways. The stories may take on any mood (comedic or serious), be fictional or non-fictional, and may explore any genre (in both the narrative and musical sense), as long as the story features music as a central theme.
The anthology will pay $50/page to be divided equally among the particular story’s contributors. Stories must be no longer than 9 pages long (and an odd number of pages), and at least one of the main contributors (either the writer or artist) must currently be living in or have previously lived in British Columbia. The book dimensions will be either 10” x 10” or 12” x 12”, to emulate the shape of a record sleeve. To apply, please submit a general synopsis of the story, a full script, your biography, and 4-5 samples of comic art (on any topic) to [email protected] by Wednesday, February 1st, 2017.
Please help us distribute this good news to as many writers and artists as possible by sharing it through your social media outlets. You can help us make this anthology Cloudscape’s greatest book yet.
