PULP ARK WEEKEND-BENEFIT BOOK DEADLINE EXTENDED!!
Tommy Hancock, Pulp Ark Coordinator and Pro Se Productions Editor in Chief, announced today that ’PULP IS GOOD FOR YOU’ a benefit book is being organized in conjunction with Pulp Ark, the convention/creators’ convention held in Batesville, Arkansas next May 13-15, 2011 is still in the works, but could use a few more stories.
“Our intent,” Hancock commented, “is to have this book be filled with excellent pulp stories and art and then to sell it to make enough money to buy copies of it AND other pulp works and then distribute them to various libraries around the country. We also would love to use funds from this, if it proved extremely successful, to develop an ongoing organization or campaign to promote the inclusion of pulp works, both classic and modern, in libraries.”
The book, now entitled ‘PULP IS GOOD FOR YOU’, has openings for stories and artists. Each story must be 15,000 words in length if authors wish to contribute. Eleven spaces for stories remain as of today. “We can do pulp fiction without artists, but they are a mainstay to the field and we definitely want them involved.” Each story can contain up to two illustrations, but with this being a benefit book, Hancock stated he would accept whatever writers and artists will be willing to do. The deadline for contributions, originally January 1, 2011 is now MARCH 1, 2011. No contributions will be accepted beyond this date.
Any writer or artist interested in contributing to this benefit book can contact Hancock at email@example.com or 870-834-4022.
