What is the Comic Book Guide to the Mission?
We're publishing an anthology of brief comics set in San Francisco's Mission District. We're looking for all sorts of stories -- slice-of-life vignettes, ribald tales, tours of your favorite spots, perspectives on how the neighborhood has changed.
How do I submit a story?
Email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I don't know anything about writing for comics. Can I still submit a story?
Absolutely! Send us your prose and we will turn it into a comic script.
I have a great story, but I'm not much of a writer. Is there any way I could just tell you my story?
Sure. We've had people send in mp3 files, and you can always just email us to set up a time to meet or talk on the phone.
I'm an artist. Can I illustrate my own story -- or someone else's?
Yes, several artists are illustrating their own pieces and we're still looking for artists to illustrate other people's stories. Email us items from your portfolio (as attachments or links) and your page rates.
How long should the comics be?
The bulk of the book will be five-page comics, but we are accepting some shorter comics, including single page and single panel comics.
I have an awesome story, but it's about the Tenderloin/The Haight/The Richmond/etc. Will you consider it?
Sorry, folks. Maybe next time.
