The/Journal of Screenwriting/is dedicating a special edition to the particular practices of scriptwriting, storyboarding, devising and pre-production in Animation and its related moving image practices.

These may include both analogue and digital approaches to text formation and construction, but should formally reference and acknowledge their particular condition as an animated film, TV episode, visual effect, interstitial, commercial, documentary insert or text, game, application, etc.

The editors are seeking a range of approaches to this topic, and would particularly welcome contributions from the following:

· Screenwriters / Practitioners addressing the particularities of writing for animation.

· Screenwriters / Practitioners deconstructing and analysing their own scripts / storyboards / pre-production materials,

· Screenwriters / Practitioners engaging with pertinent approaches to writing for various platforms, different contexts of broadcasting and exhibition, and for a range of techniques.

The editors are also seeking:

·      Analyses of Animation Screenplays / Storyboards

·      Analyses of Screenwriting Theory pertinent to Animation

·      Analyses of Animation Production Methods and Processes

·      Analyses of Animation Auteurs and Screenwriters

·      Analyses of Animation Genres

These are merely guidelines and areas of enquiry, and all suggestions for approaches to this topic are welcome and can be discussed informally with the editors.

All articles will include a 250-word abstract, short biography and keywords, and should be sent to the co-editors of this issue, Paul Wells ((P.Wells /at/ <mailto:(P.Wells /at/>) and Chris Pallant ((chris.pallant /at/ <mailto:(chris.pallant /at/>).
