The Upstate Book Project is a collaborative art project connecting  artists throughout the Upstate area (Spartanburg and all adjacent counties) to write and illustrate a book one page at a time. The idea is  that one artist starts a story and illustrates his or her page then hands it off to the next artist to continue the story and illustrate their page until the project is complete. Artists are juried in by a panel of judges. Selected artists then have 48 hours to submit their storyline via email and 4 weeks to submit their illustration to a designated drop off point. The story submissions are then edited for content, the artwork photographed and compiled into book format and uploaded to a cloud publisher. The final product is a book written and illustrated by a per-determined group of  artists/writers that may have never even met. Research previous book here.

A “Call For Artists” page will be posted soon. Stay tuned.
