Geofiction

The deadline for our fictional worlds map making competition has now passed (we might accept more maps if you send them before the end of Friday 24th though no guarantees). We’ve had submissions from cartographers, writers and artists from across the world, the quality far outstripping our expectations and our own ability.

While we begin the judging phase I’d like to share some cool mappy things with you.

the cartographers guild http://www.cartographersguild.com an excellent forum/ community of cartographers who specialise in making maps of fictional places. Authors take note: members of the guild can make you a map of your fictional world – seeing as many of us are too busy writing to have time to map our worlds, it’s good to know there’s professional map makers out there willing to come to our aid. http://www.cartographersguild.com/mapmaking-requests/.
