Successful Contributors from New Sun Rising – we are looking for you!

Filed under: Writing competition or opportunity — Annie Evett @ 12:08 am

This is a general call out to any contributor (authors and artists) who had their work accepted into the New Sun Rising Anthology. A number have not replied to emails and perhaps have changed contact details since submitting or haven’t checked.

If you were a contributor – or know someone whose work  was accepted for New Sun Rising: stories for Japan and who have not yet sent back their contracts, bios and pix to do so as soon as possible and before 31 March 2012.

31 March 2012 is the cut-off day for determining the look of the final layout for almost 400 pages!
Layout work will begin on 1 April 2012. Although 1 April is widely considered as April Fool´s Day, we prefer to think of it as the start of Miyako Odori (“Cherry Blossom Dances”), an annual geiko/geisha dance celebration in the Gion District of Kyoto, Japan. While the term geisha means “artist” or “person of the arts”, the more direct term geiko means essentially “a child of the arts” ….
And so we call out to the five missing artists, children of the arts, creators of the following works accepted for the anthology:
  • BlossomTree (b/w photograph)
  • Calligraphy (black on white background with black border and stamp;
The meaning of the calligraphy is: 不撓不屈(ふとうふくつ)
どんな困難に出会ってもけっして心がくじけないこと。futoufukutsu
No matter what difficulties you encounter, never let your heart/mind/spirit falter.”
  • Cherry Blossom (pencil drawing, initialled CE)
  • Japanese Blockprint (geisha indoors, white on dark teal-blue background, intialled DS)
  • Kitsune2 (ink, fox against rising sun)
Artists are requested to contact the Editors (newsunrisingeditors[at]ragingaardvark[dot]com) and send high resolution (300 dpi) copies of their artwork.
Contracts will be sent on receipt of notifications.
Please share widely so that we may be able to find the five outstanding artists by deadline.
Many thanks!
