On our Caption Contest
This year, we’re expanding on the written work of Working Draft and exploring storytelling from a new angle with our first ever comic caption contest. Artist Emma Honeybun created three single panel comics to match our theme of nature.
- Submit a one-sentence caption for any of our three comic panels for the chance to have it featured in Working Draft Magazine.
- Submit your captions by commenting on @workingdraftmag Instagram posts.
- Submit as many captions for as many of the comics as you like.
- The Editorial Board will select a winning caption for each image to share on Working Draft magazine.
Emma Honeybun is an artist and fan of all that is rough, crude, and unconventional. Emma works mostly in the style of graphic novels and cartoon designs, with many of her works featuring animals. More of Emma’s work can be found on Twitter @honeyem03.
On our Style Guide
Working Draft’s style guide has been shaped by two key resources: Elements of Indigenous Style: A Guide for Writing By and About Indigenous Peoples by Gregory Younging, and The Canadian Press Stylebook.
On Content Warnings
This year, the editorial board of Working Draft magazine has chosen not to include content warnings on our pieces.
This isn’t a decision we take lightly, and we wanted to provide our readers with some insight into this change in direction.
In previous issues of Working Draft, we have included content warnings at the beginning of some articles to warn readers of potentially sensitive material. Recent research has suggested, however, that these warnings aren’t effective at minimizing distress and can instead increase anticipatory anxiety in readers.
Beyond this, content warnings only function to alert readers of potentially distressing content and offer no resources on how to deal with distress if and when it happens.
We have encouraged our contributors to write thoughtful descriptions of their pieces that provide necessary context in hopes that our readers will have a general understanding of the piece they’re about to read.
We understand that this system, much like our previous system, is not perfect. We will not be able to warn readers of every potentially troubling thing they may encounter while reading our magazine, so we have included a few resources at the bottom of this page aimed at helping our readers find support should they need it.
This magazine is constantly evolving with the goal of encouraging our readers to engage critically with our content and with the world around them. If you have questions or comments about this change, please send us a message.
