|Winner of the 2012 First Graphic Novel Competition|
Myriad Editions has launched its 2014 First Graphic Novel Competition (FGNC) for unpublished graphic novelists resident in the UK.
The FGNC looks for 15-30 pages of a graphic work-in-progress, fiction or non-fiction, and the winner has the opportunity for their book to be developed with and published by Myriad Editions. New for 2014, the winner will be invited to have a week’s working retreat at the studio of a writer’s house in France.
Information and guidelines for the competition is available on the Myriad Editions website. The winning entry will be chosen purely on the strength and promise of the art and writing by a panel of judges:
Andy Oliver, critic and blogger, Broken Frontier
Corinne Pearlman, Creative Director, Myriad Editions
Woodrow Phoenix, author of graphic essay Rumble Strip and co-editor of Nelson
Meg Rosoff, author of How I Live Now, Picture Me Gone and other novels
Nicola Streeten, author of graphic memoir Billy, Me & You
Plus one other judge, to be confirmed
Corinne Pearlman says: “the inaugural 2012 competition was so strong that Myriad is publishing both the winner and three shortlisted authors”.
