The Upstate Book Project is a collaborative 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 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, the artwork photographed and compiled into book format and uploaded to a cloud publisher. The final product is a book written by a per-determined group of artists/writers.
