WRITERS:

[yes_list]
  • All genres accepted.
  • Each webcomic will be approximately 3-12 panels unless otherwise determined by head editor and artist.

  • COMPLETE SCRIPTS should include the following:
    • Complete story outlined with dialogue
    • Full panel breakdowns (written or rough thumbnail sketches)
    • Detailed description of proposed themes, motifs, and symbolisms
    • Two (2) to three (3) reference images that will serve as concept art for the style and tone for the webcomic
  • Script (story, panel breakdown (written), and description of themes) should be sent as a WORD document (.doc, .docx) and the file should be named in the following format: LASTNAME FIRSTNAME  TITLE.doc
  • Reference images and panel breakdown (thumbnails) should be sent as JPG/JPEG/PNG/PDF/WORD file
  • You can submit as many complete scripts as you want, but please combine all into one submission form.
  • If your script is selected, writers will be able to browse portfolios of selected artists and choose up to three artists they would like to work with. Artist pairing is not guaranteed and is based on availability, demand, editor discretion, and input from artists on which scripts they would like to work on.  Final pairing of writer and artist will be selected by editor.
