Children Of Earth & Sky
Written by Manon Wright
Children of the Earth and Sky is a short story about an enigmatic ritual from the perspective of children living in two mirror societies. A traditional nomadic one set firmly on the ground and a hidden industrialised city floating 5,000 meters above them in the sky
An assured debut; a tale of how one historical catalyst resulted in parallel cultural development that is thought-provoking and raises so many interesting questions for the reader to consider. A remarkably confident first long-form offering

Manon is an illustrator who specialises in publishing design and sequential narratives. Her work can be dreamy and surreal; however, the themes at the heart of each story usually centre around empathy and understanding between people across cultures, classes and lived experiences. Her work has been enriched by an eclectic mix of inspirations, including mythology, folklore, film, politics, philosophy, and the people Ive met in my travels.
She won the 2021 Thought Bubble Comics Creator Prize and is one of Broken Frontiers 2022 Six to Watch.
