I like to collaborate. It’s not half the work, although it is half the money, but I do get a lot of other things out of the deal. Fun, companionship, surprise, challenge – all that good stuff. So when the Adelaide Advertiser approached me to see if I’d be interested in collaborating with several hundred schoolkids all across South Australia, why would I possibly say no?
From the article:
“The Advertiser’s next progressive story, a collaboration between Williams, cartoonist Stephen Stanley and primary school children from all over South Australia … follows the hugely popular Boy With Silver Eyes, written by Ruth Starke with successive chapters contributed by 27 schools and published daily in The Advertiser last February. An e-book release followed.”
It’s going to be huge. Stay tuned for further updates!
Edited to add: It has begun! Follow the link to read the first chapter.
Oh, and here’s the article from the print edition of the paper showing some of Stephen’s fabulous art. (I swear I was actually wearing pants.)
