Calling all artistic Wayfarers! To celebrate the upcoming paperback publication of A Closed and Common Orbit we’re holding a fan art contest.

Now, if you can’t draw, do not fear. Fan art takes all kinds of forms, from cosplay to cover design, from quote art to jewellery. All of these forms are eligible. All we ask is that you submit a picture of it on either Instagram or Twitter using #WayfarerFanArtComp, and that you stay clear of any copyrighted images. In lieu of any artistic ability, here are a few ideas from the team:

  1. Cosplay as Sissix and take a picture
  2. Make a poster using your favourite quote
  3. Design a postcard from Hedra Ka
  4. Draw the Wayfarer crew
  5. Create an impressionist painting of your feelings at the end of The Long Way
  6. The list goes on! The possibilities are endless!

The winner will receive one of the coolest prizes we’ve ever given away: Becky Chambers will name a character after you in her next Wayfarers novel (title to be revealed soon!).

The winner will also be the first to receive a proof of the new Wayfarer novel, and, while you wait for it to arrive, we’ll give you £100 worth of Hodderscape books to keep you company. Three runners up will also win £100 worth of Hodderscape books.

This competition closes on 18th July. Read the full terms and conditions here. Good luck – we can’t wait to ogle your entries!
