The Girly Comic is looking for new work to showcase on our webcomic site (http://factorfictionpress.co.uk/webcomic/) and collect at a later date in print collections. Since starting publication in 2002 The Girly Comic has been nominated for the Comic Creators Guild Award for Best Small Press Title, for the Best Small Press/Indy Comic in the National Comic Awards, and short-listed for the British Fantasy Award for Best Comic for the last two years.
Submissions on any topic or from any genre are welcomed, as the comic aims to have a diverse range of stories suitable for a teenage audience upwards. However, all stories must have a female main character. Strips should be self-contained stories between one and seven pages in length. We are also looking for guest strips by other webcomic or small press comic creators. For an idea of the kind of strips we publish, please see our extensive online archive: http://factorfictionpress.co.uk/webcomic/category/comics/
We are looking for original work, so please do not submit any strips involving characters that are the copyright of another creator or company.
Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Writer/Artists: Please send a synopsis or fully written script (as a .rtf, .doc or in the body of your email) and samples of your artwork, along with a few details about yourself.
Writers: Please email a written script (as a .rtf, .doc or in the body of your email), and some details about yourself. If you are unfamiliar with the comic script format, there are plenty of examples online just a Google away.
Artists: Please email samples of your work (no more than a 10mb email attachment), or a website where your work can be found, along with some details about yourself.
As we make no profit from The Girly Comic I’m afraid we are unable to pay creators. However, we will do our utmost to promote the creators we work with, and hopefully help to bring them to the attention of paying publications.
Work submitted remains the copyright of the original creators, with The Girly Comic having first electronic publication rights and the right to reprint the strip in any future printed or ebook collections of the comic.
