EMBARGOED UNTIL 00:01 25th April 2014 - Kendal, UK, 25th April 2014: The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for its massive weekend of comic events in Kendal, Cumbria in October (17th – 19th October 2014).
 
 In just its second year the Festival features an increasingly stellar line up of comics creators and designers encompassing a wide range of genres, including international guests such as artist Becky Cloonan (who, along with her many independently-created works, was the first female artist to draw the main Batman title for DC Comics), digital comics guru Scott McCloud, top comics writer Gail Simone, Junko Mizuno,  the award-winning Wilfried Lupano and Jeremie Moreau (creators of the acclaimed graphic novel The Hartlepool Monkey), Bone creator Jeff Smith and Dutch cartoonist Joost Swarte – plus a host of home-grown British artists, writers and illustrators.
 
 Just a few of the many creators in this year’s line-up are the legendary Watchmen co-creator, artist Dave Gibbons, Sunday Times-featured artist Nick Abadzis, Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard, Doctor Who artists Mark Buckingham and Mike Collins, 2014 Eisner award nominee creator Rob Davis, Marvel Comics artist Gary Erskine, top designer Rian Hughes, 2000AD and Batman artist Jock, leading independent artist Sean Phlllips, The Beano and VIZ artist Lew Stringer and many top independent comic creators, such as Luther Arkwright and Grandville creator Bryan Talbot and Vampire Academy artist Emma Vieceli.
 
 (For further information on creator's works, visit the Festival's web site - www.comicartfestival.com).
 
 The Festival features more than 50 carefully-produced events with often unusual combinations of guests, unusual presentations and new formats. It includes films and live draws alongside workshops and master classes including a whole programme dedicated to children and teenagers. Themes and strands include Konichewa Japan, Vive la France!, Lost in Space, The Great War in Comics and Just for Laughs?
 
 Plus, the Festival offers a huge, free, Comic Marketplace in Kendal’s Clock Tower, crammed with publisher stands, creators offering art and sketches – and, of course, there will be plenty of comics for sale. (Full details of the family zone and Comics Clock Tower plus full exhibitions programme and more will be released in May and June, but look out for creators such as Isabel Greenberg, writer Ian Edginton, Great Beast publisher Adam Cadwell among many others). There’ll also be a pop-up Forbidden Planet for the weekend.
 
 With a firm eye on developing new comic talent there are also plenty of workshops for aspiring comic creators to sign up for.
 
“The first festival ran like a well-oiled machine, with many people stating that it seemed like a long-established event,” enthuses Festival guest and founding patron Bryan Talbot. “If you only go to one comic event this year, this is the one that's unmissable.”
 
“The organisers are building on last year's resounding success to make this year's festival outstanding,” added fellow patron Mary Talbot. “There's another stunning array of guests and exhibitions, events and competitions - so there's sure to be something for everyone. Like last year, only even better!”
 
 "One of the most popular questions after our first festival in 2013 was how would we be able to match its breadth, scale and quality,” says Festival Director Julie Tait. “We hope this year's programme (with a few surprises still to come) will answer that question.
 
“We are delighted to have an increased number of international creators and to have broadened the genres too. Meanwhile we have listened to feedback and have extended the range of the family zone and have made the Comics Clocktower free to the public. And we can assure you that Kendal will be even more of a comic art town for the weekend"

Lakes Festival Celebrates 50 years of Doctor Who in Comics
 
Kendal, UK, 23rd April 2014: Grab your sonic screwdriver and set the time-space co-ordinates on your TARDIS' for Kendal, 17th October 2014!  The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is pleased to announce a number of events to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who in comics, the world's longest-running science fiction TV-inspired tie-in strip.
 
Doctor Who fans celebrated 50 years of the Doctor Who TV show last year, but some may not know that the first comic strip based on the show was published one year after the series launch, in TV Comic. Since then, Doctor Who has featured in numerous comic titles including Countdown, Doctor Who Magazine and Doctor Who Adventures in the UK. IDW were the first US publisher to produce a regular Doctor Who title, as well as several limited series – a license recently picked up by Britain’s very own Titan Comics, out from July onwards.
 
 Lined up for this year’s Lakes Festival are Dez Skinn, the talented editor and publisher who brought Doctor Who Weekly to life back in 1979, the precursor to today’s Doctor Who Magazine. Dez will be on hand to talk about both the origins of the Weekly and his many other comic creations, including the acclaimed anthology comic, Warrior.
 
 Marking 50 years of Doctor Who in comics, the festival will also deliver a special panel – Fifty Years of Doctor Who comics in 50 Minutes – featuring Doctor Who artists Mike Collins and Martin Geraghty and writers Scott Gray, Nick Abadzis and Robbie Morrison. Former Doctor Who Magazine editor John Freeman will host the panel.
 
 Also at the Festival are a number of creators who’ve had their own dealings with the world’s favourite time traveller, including Dave Gibbons (who drew the first Doctor Who Weekly main strips), IDW Doctor Who artists Mark Buckingham and Gary Erskine and cartoonist Kev F Sutherland, who created several cartoons for DWM during John’s tenure.
 
 These Doctor Who-connected guests are the latest addition to a guest list that includes a range of British and overseas creators including The Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard, 2000AD artist Jock, self-taught Japanese artist Junko Mzuno, digital comics frontiersman Scott McCloud, leading US comics writer Gail Simone, the creator of the multi-award winning Bone Jeff Smith, Dutch underground comics artist Joost Swarte and Emma Vieceli will also join many other comic creators for Kendal’s second comics extravaganza.
 
 The full line up of guests is due to be announced this coming Friday – 25th April – when tickets go on sale. (For further information on announced guests so far, visit the Festival's web site).
 
The Lakes International Comic Art Festival (17th – 19th October 2014) is a new kind of comic art event in the UK. Modelled on a European-style festival it aims to take over the market town of Kendal, on the edge of the Lake District, with comic art presenting the widest range of genres. Events include a 24 Hour Comic Marathon, children’s comic workshops, talks, signings, Great War in Comics art exhibition and a Comics Fair.

• Tickets for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival go on sale from 25th April 2014. Sign up for the Festival's newsletter here for the latest news! Web: www.comicartfestival.com

« Last post by Geoff the head Uncle on April 22, 2014, 12:47:37 PM »
Apex Magazine Submission Guidelines Changes


Apex Publications is pleased to announce changes to the Apex Magazine submission guidelines. These changes include upping our word limit for short fiction, increasing the pay rate, and new guidelines for poetry submissions.


For many years our submission guidelines have stated that we have a firm 5,000 word limit on short fiction submissions. Recently we decided to bump that up to 7,500 words, giving our authors more room to tell their tales and bringing our readers some longer pieces of fiction. 


Also, in accordance with SFWA’s new pro-rate requirements, we will be paying 6 cents a word for all original short fiction beginning July 1st. 


Finally, we have set a 200 line limit on all poetry submissions, and all poetry must be original and unpublished. 


The editors and publisher of Apex Magazine are dedicated to continuing our mission to bring our readers outstanding short fiction and poetry from the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres, and we believe that these changes to our guidelines are an important step in that direction.

The Apex Magazine submission guidelines may be read in their entirety here: http://www.apex-magazine.com/submission-guidelines/


APEX PUBLICATIONS (www.apexbookcompany.com) is a small press dedicated to publishing exemplary works of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Owned and operated by Jason B. Sizemore, Apex publishes the thrice Hugo Award-nominated Apex Magazine. The Apex catalog contains books by genre luminaries such as Tom Piccirilli, Catherynne M. Valente, and Lavie Tidhar.

We're offering yearly subscriptions at the discounted price of $17.95 and offering a free Apex eBook to anyone who subscribes (or renews) during this period. Our goal is to get enough new subscriptions (around 250) to have the revenue to add a fourth original short story to each issue of Apex Magazine. If we reach our goal, we'll be giving away one Kindle Paperwhite.
