Greetings Celflux fans.
We here at Celflux are continually humbled and thankful for the doors that continue to open for our small indie project. Most of our updates these days are about our current project the Celflux Animated short. However, our graphic novel is still very much in production. Other independent creators can testify that because of limited time, people and resources things move a bit slower. Nevertheless, you do what you can and grab opportunities as they come along.
One such opportunity has arisen for our graphic novel. We recently published Celflux issue no.3 and entered it into CODE’s Burt Award Caribbean Literature. In collaboration with Canadian organization CODE, the Bocas Lit Fest manages CODE’s Burt Award for Caribbean Literature, a literary award that recognizes literary works by Caribbean authors for Young Adults.
Now in its fifth year, the Burt Award for Caribbean Literature recognizes up to three English-language literary works for young adults (aged 12 through 18) written by Caribbean authors.
This year, the winning title will be awarded $10,000 CDN, and two finalists will be awarded $2,000 CDN each.
Publishers of winning titles will be awarded a guaranteed purchase of up to 2,500 copies, which will be donated to schools, libraries, and literacy organizations throughout the region. To date, more than 15,000 copies of winning books have made their way into the hands of Caribbean youth.
We are excited to just be a part of such a prestigious event and that Celflux would be considered of good enough quality to be accepted into the festival. We want to thank the Bocas Lit Fest and CODE for their consideration.
