From CBA vol 38|39 (December 2017) of CBA, we are going to add a selection of text pieces to the international art comics anthology, and we want YOU to contribute material.
You heard right. From being a full-blooded comics anthology, we are turning CBA into more of a magazine and we need your help!
What we want: We’re basically looking for text pieces that match the comics by relating to the theme (interpreted freely), or to the international experimental comics scene, or just avant-garde stuff in general that you think might fit into what we’re doing in CBA. It can be an article, interview, statement about comics or just some artistic, experimental, poetic text about pretty much anything!
Length: between 1500 – 8000 characters
Deadline: August 15
Theme: FRAGMENTS OF PAST TIME
Main editor for this volume: Christina Cromnow
Description: The past can be found in the form of small parts inside your body. Some parts are impossible to get rid of. Maybe they’re important, maybe they’re not. But they do exist for a reason. What is your reason?
Even though your past time is out of reach, there is always the possibility of deciding how it will look in front of other people. What would your fragments look like if you showed them in public?
Unfortunately we cannot offer you any payment for participating. If we publish your submission you will receive 10 free copies of the issue (this is the same deal as for the comics we publish and we also don’t get paid for the editorial work. We wish it was different, but it’s the situation). Naturally, copyright for your material will stay in your hands and we do accept material that has already been published elsewhere. That’s all we can offer at this date. We hope that you will find being in CBA an enjoyable experience. You would be in the company of some great comic creators.
(And don’t worry, CBA is still going to be mostly comics, we haven’t gone completely crazy…)
