We have a major project on the course instead of a dissertation and this is essentially conceptualising and producing a book. I am doing this with one other girl and we are at the stage now where we have just done a call out for writers and illustrators to submit proposals to be considered as a contributor for the book which is an anthology of dark, gothic fairytales suitable for a crossover YA/Adult audience.
I thought I would share the callout here in case anyone is interested in getting involved! There will be no payment (sorry!) as UCLan publishing is a not for profit company but if chosen you will get the experience of going through the editorial process with me and my partner with the assistance of top publishing professionals and at the end you will get a copy of the book. If their is money in the budget for a print run it will also be properly published through the small publishing house attached to my University that does many of the major projects.
Illustrators & Writers Wanted!
