Voiceworks online is currently seeking experimental, digital-based writing and comics. If you make work that can’t be printed on the page, this is your time to shine! This includes but is not limited to:
Bots and generative text works
Writing with sound or video elements
Full-colour comics or comics with animated elements
Each selected piece goes through a collaborative editing process, and individualised feedback is provided for all unsuccessful written submissions. All published contributors are paid for their work.
What we’re looking for
The best way to get a sense of the kinds of work we publish is to read the work on our website! You can also check out our handy digital writing guide for lots of tips on what we like and how to get started if you’re new to digital writing.
