FAQ, updated 09May22
Do we need to submit a completed work/manuscript, or just a pitch?
You only to submit a pitch, a summary of your story and past work/portfolio
Can I submit more than one entry?
Yes you can, but most likely only one entry will be chosen.
Is this a paid submission?
Currently it is not. Only after the Kickstarter is successful, and deducting the production cost, will we know the profit that can be shared among the creators.
