Music touches our lives every day. It is an influential and defining part of all generations and cultures and, because of this, we would like to put together an anthology full of (2-6 page) autobiographical stories about the influence that music has had on your lives as an individuals, as artists, and/or on your creative process.

In Spring 2007, we published Side A: The Music Lover's Graphic Novel that included such great artists as: Liz Greenfield (Stuff Sucks), Ben Snakepit (Snakepit), Lars Brown (North World), and Corey Marie Parkhill (Scene Language). It's already being sold in shops nationally and was featured in The Comics Journal, Razorcake, and Alternative Press Magazine. While the reviews were great, we would like to try our hand at making the next installment even better.

You can team up with one other person (a writer with an artist, or vice versa). All entries that are chosen for publication will remain copyright their creators, and said creators will receive a free copy of the final publication to call their own.

We're shooting for a 200 page book that will be on shelves Spring 2009; we will be taking submissions until November 30th, 2008. You can read more about the project and the submission guidelines on the website linked below.

Poseur Ink was formed in 2003 as a small press comic book publisher and alternative apparel shop by writer/illustrator Rachel Dukes. While primarily selling their products on the web, Poseur Ink also attends several comic book conventions annually, and select merchandise is carried in alternative stores across the country. Side A: The Music Lover's Graphic Novel was their first large anthology.
