While Asians are riding on the wave of representation in media from Crazy Rich Asians to Always Be My Maybe, we know that there’s still more stories to be told. Paper Oranges is happy to present their first Storytelling Submissions Program, a chance for your story to be illustrated by one of our very own illustrators. You don’t need any artistic background; all you need is a story.

Throughout this you’ll be working closely with our illustrator creating short stories to be turned into comic strips to be shown on several social media platforms. We’re here to help you bring your story to life!

Since this is our first time doing this, we’re hoping to get as many stories illustrated so please apply!!
