We’ve already started accepting stories that will be included in our forthcoming ROCK IS NOT DEAD (#RIND) project! Will your story be one of them? Send us your short story or graphic short story (completed or in draft, see here) inspired by a rock song and together we can prove ROCK IS NOT DEAD!
You might think of it this way: is there a song that makes you think of a particular story line whenever you hear it? Write/draw that story! Is there a rock song that would make the perfect background music to a story you’ve written/drawn? Send us that story! What if Hollywood turned one of your stories into a movie, what would be the theme song? Send us that story! Give us that song!
You can choose any song you like so long as it might be considered a rock song!
Your submission can be long or short, but we do want a complete story (beginning, middle, and end, with a clear narrative progression).
Any genre is fine! Realism, fantasy, comedy, sci-fi, our criteria is simple: we just want a good story!
A note for Writers…
We’re especially interested in conventional short stories to balance off the graphic short stories we’ve received. We’re looking for short stories no more than 6000 words with a strong narrative.
A note for Graphic artists…
The pages will be laid out on pages 7″ by 10″.
Black and white images are fine but ROCK IS NOT DEAD will be our first project printed in colour. So, if there be blood, let us see it in red; if your character has eyes that sparkle like emeralds, let the green show through.
A note for Bands…
We’re already recruiting bands to record the RIND soundtrack. If you’re interested in participating in this innovative project, check here.
For a full explanation of the #RIND project, please check out some of our recent posts:
We’ll review drafts any time (see here), but the deadline to submit your completed story for consideration is:
March 1st 2015
April 1st 2015
We can’t wait to enjoy your submission!
