Calling all young writers, artists, and creatives…

This is a Call for Submissions for young writers and creatives (ages 15-ish to 25-ish)—and selected professionals—to submit content for potential inclusion in The Storytelling Book of the Ancient Traveler. James Artimus Owen—author/illustrator of the Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica—contributed his brilliant work to jump-start the book with his opening pages. For this, we owe him a HUGE thank you.

If selected for the one-of-a-kind, hand-bound, leather volume, your creative work will be published alongside entries from other young creatives and professionals. Simply select one of the items on the Ancient Traveler’s List of Objects below, write a short story or create an illustration following our guidelines, and submit it by email. There is no cost to submit your work. Submissions are due on the first of each month through Jan. 15, 2018.

 

This “synergy arts” project concept is the brainchild of Joanne de Biasi, who hand made the book (pictured). The project will be brought to fruition through Absolutely Wild! Enchanted Faerie Portals & Other Whimsy, who will auction the completed book to support creative endeavors of young writers and artists. See their list of charities on the AW Web site.
