Enchanted Conversation is looking for stories and sequential art (aka comics)
August: Anything Goes!

For our August issue, we have NO SPECIFIED THEME, so anything goes! You get to pick the theme to your fairy tale, folktale, or myth. Work can either be re-tellings of established stories or use original characters set within the fairy tale, folktale, and mythic templates. Questions about the differences in these templates? Check out a quick reference guide to them HERE.

Be bold, traditional, lyrical, or experimental in your storytelling and enchant us with your original stories set in a variety of locations around the world and time periods from ancient to modern.
