My friend Tarl has been working on starting up a new online magazine for aspiring writers called On the Premises, in which he provides a open-ended premise for a story-writing contest which all the submissions must follow in some fashion. For the just-posted first issue, the premise was "One or more characters are traveling in some kind of vehicle towards a specific, planned destination. For some reason, they fail to arrive at their intended destination."
There are other features in each issue, including a mini-contest and, probably of the most interest to people who wish I would draw more cartoons, an installment of Six Things based on the contest premise (my first paid cartooning work, incidentally). Check it out here.Posted by Francis at 08:47 AM in Six Things
