GRAYHAVEN COMICS APPRENTICE- Challenge 7- The Pitch

The Final Four (COURTLAND FUNKE, NATHAN KENKLE, JARED MOORE, SAM READ) face off in this week’s challenge-

 

Congratulations to the final four. It’s time for your next challenge, Across the Board.

It’s important for a great writer to be able to work in multiple genres. One of the things we’ve been trying to do since the inception of Grayhaven Comics is to have a diversity of themes. This week, we want to see how you can tailor your ideas to these themes. We’ve released over 10 uniquely themed anthologies in the last three years.

This week, we want to see what stories you can come up with for these themes. We are going to give you a list of eligible topics, and your job is to pick three, and come up with a capsule pitch for a story based around that theme for each. The capsule pitch should be for a story of 2-4 pages, and the pitch should include a summary of the full story – don’t leave us hanging on the ending! – in one paragraph for each.

The themes you can pick from are as follows:

Hope

Despair

Heroes

Horror

Romance

Myth

Sci-Fi

Silver Age

Fairy Tales

Western

True Ghost Stories

Pulp

Crime

The three you pick are up to you, but for each one you pick, we need a capsule pitch of the story you would do in it, and you must pick three different themes. Naturally, as you’ve all pitched for volumes before, none of these pitches should be anything you’ve submitted before.

This challenge will be judged on the originality of your pitches, whether we can see the story you pitch fitting into this short format, and whether they accurately fit the theme you’ve chosen. Based on this challenge, we will fire at least one of you in advance of the final challenge.

This challenge is due Friday, September 13th at 5 PM EST. Good luck.
