    Calling all cartoonists!

    This is a reminder carte-blanche is looking for a few good stories.
    carte blanche is an online Literary review published twice a year – in the spring and fall.

    Now in our seventh year we insist there is more than one way to tell a story. Figurations written, spoken, captured and drawn. Our mandate; to provide a venue for narrative of all forms.

    New to this issue, we are looking for submissions for a themed feature on crisis! From burning the cookies to global disasters, we want to hear about the moments or events that changed everything. Egypt's recent revolution anyone?

    For Graphic Fiction we are honoured and pleased to look at new unpublished creations.

    We will consider previously published work if it has appeared on personal websites/blogs or in small run print zines. If your work has been previously published, please specify where.

    We are looking for the best of the Sequential Arts. And while we are extra interested in stories about crisis this issue, there are no fixed boundaries on theme, or the regional origins of the creator. Carte blanche is backed by the Quebec Writers’ Federation, but the journal is open to submissions from anyone, anywhere!

    Length is flexible but we suggest no more than 30 pages maximum.

    The next Bi-annual deadline for submissions of graphic fiction to be published in the spring 2011 – 13th edition – of carte blanche is March 15th!

    See our site here for more information. And here for more details regarding image format and submission guidelines.

    Hey, so just to follow up, this is how that turned out. #13 went live this week. We ended up taking two of what was a really strong selection of submissions.

    From the Eisner Award–winning creator of ‘Too Much Coffee Man’, Shannon Wheeler, we're happy to have a classic gag comic, ‘Oil Spill’. Was a big fan of Shannon's work in the 90's so very cool for me.

    And someone else who's work I've always admired, from James Romberger, of ‘Seven Miles A Second’ which blew me away when it first came out, not to mention ’2020 Visions’, ‘Bronx Kill’, and ‘Aaron and Ahmed’, I'm are very proud to present a 16 page short story, called ‘Raymond’.

    We had many other excellent submissions we couldn’t accept, but i’m pleased to present a few of them on Sequential HERE instead! So that's that. Submissions for #14 will be open soon, we're just discussing theme ideas now. i'll leave word here when it's sorted!
