Difference Engine would like to invite writers and illustrators to submit story pitches to our comics anthology, which will be published in 2020! SOUND: A Comics Anthology is an initiative to develop and showcase the talents of local and regional creators. Coming on board as guest editors are Budjette Tan and Charis Loke, both veterans in the Southeast Asian comics industry.

We’re looking for comics that are:

Black & White
Written in the English language

Creators must be:

There will be two rounds of selection – Round 1 (Call for Submissions) and Round 2 (Further Development).

Stories selected for publication will receive a page rate of USD$30.

The deadline for Round 1 is 31 July 2019.
