GALACTIC NEWS UPDATE FRESH TO YOUR COMM. MMM SMELL THAT NEWS.
Hey Space Explorers how you doing? Here’s all the latest news and updates coming soon to Galaxy.
The Galaxy Team is expanding! In the next volume we will be welcoming three new writers to bring new places and designated species to life. The idea of Galaxy is to give writers at any stage in their writing life a chance to experiment and play with science-fiction so please welcome our brand new Space Cadets.
Emma works as a writer/director with award-winning Manchester theatre company Powder Keg. She has been shortlisted for Write Now Live with Penguin Random House for The Matinee Dog (still writing it, no pressure, totally not panicking) focussing on gender and sexuality in industrial revolution Manchester.
Becky is a final year English Language and Creative Writing student at Lancaster University who enjoys drinking wine and writing silly stories about supernatural friendship. She’d currently like to go into publishing or the media, but mainly just wants enough money to provide for her future dog.
Chad Bunney is a 21 year old writer from West Yorkshire who is currently spending a few months in Belfast working away on the novel he hopes to get published one day. He is thrilled to have been asked to join Andrew Ainscough’s Galaxy project and hopes that as the project continues to grow he can add a star or two to Ainscough’s collection.
Just like that Volume 2 whizzed by. We’ve had time travel, sewer monsters and another ludicrous outing from Raincha and his purple friends. What next for the Galaxy? For a tantalising glimpse check out the titles of Volume 3 below:
BLOODSHOT by Emma Geraghty
SHIPWRECKED by Andy Ainscough
BROKEN BUTTONS AND SACRED SILENCES by Becky Kinge
CAPTAIN RAINCHA AND THE TOMB OF DREAMS by Andy Ainscough
OF MAYFLY MEN by Chad Bunney
STARLIGHT. CAMERA. ACTION! by Andy Ainscough.
Can’t wait for another wild ride!
We’ve already got some brilliant writers but I want more! If you have an idea for a story – then get involved! The beauty of galaxy is that practically anything and everything can be a story – so if you have a burning idea I want to hear it. As with the other volumes there will be six stories, each with an accompanying soundtrack. So if you would like to get involved and write for Vol.3. please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15th April 2017:
A brief summation of your story, moment and/or theme
A suggestion of your soundtrack.
If you wish to reuse characters or are unsure about certain aspects of the galaxy please don’t hesitate to get in touch! If your story isn’t right for Vol.4 it may well be for Vol.5 (or beyond!).
That’s all for Galactic News. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact page!
