Jason Rodriguez, editor for Elk’s Run, is offering free editing to aspiring creators. Here’s the offer:
What I’m thinking I would want to do is accept 40 word pitches for three to eight page stories from writers who want to fine-tune their comic writing skills. From those pitches I’ll choose an idea I jive with and that seems workable and I’ll request the full script…. Then I’ll post the pitch, the script and my edits in a way that aims to teach a larger audience about writing for comics. I’m not going to sabotage people and tear them up if the script isn’t that good — it’s going to be 100% productive and the people who put themselves out there will get full credit, links and I guarantee you’ll have a script that, story wise (you’re on your own art wise), will get you into a variety of anthologies. Plus, you’ll learn something, and what’s wrong with that?
Hopefully, we’ll all learn something.
