Submissions for issue 3 close 24 June
With issue 2 nearing completion, I'm closing written submissions for issue 3 on the 24th of June.
We already have about a half dozen articles submitted. If you'd like to illustrate one of them, please get in touch (your deadline will be later than the 24th).Theme for Grim Portents issue 3
Since you have all kindly given me a long list of potential themes, and submissions for GP issue 2 are now closed, I thought that I should release the theme for issue 3 so you can start working on your submissions.
Feel free to email me your submission when you're happy with it. At a later date, I'll declare when submissions will close. This might be a while, as it's coming up to university exams.
The theme? 'The Thaw'. I thought it had a nice symmetry with The Dead of Winter.
Of course, you don't have to write to the theme, and you are welcome to submit something that you have already shared/published elsewhere.
