Q: What should I submit? What’s the theme?
A: The anthology is a showcase of the talent of women who make independent comics. It has a cross promotional function. Do whatever theme or genre you do/enjoy best.
Q: Who can submit?
A: We are primarily interested in female independent comic writers, artists, and visual storytellers.
Q: I’m transgender. Can I submit?
A: If you live your life as a woman full time. Yes.
Q: I’m male. Can I submit?
A: It depends. Are you telling a personal story concerning your understanding of gender or women’s issues? We’d like to see it. If your story just happens to have female characters, then likely no.
We’re not going to say a flat no because we recognize there are men who have an academic interest in gender studies and men who have made contributions to women’s movements worldwide. It would be a shame to miss out on those voices. So it really depends. If you think you have something that will fit, send it to the editor with any additional information you think will be relevant. – firstname.lastname@example.org

A: 8.5 x 11 inches (21.6 x27.9 cm)
Q: What dimension should my comic be?
A: Any dimension which will fit within the finished 8.5x11 space. That means that if you submit the comic as 6x9 or any other dimension, we will reproduce it at that size upon the finished 8.5x11 inch page.
Q: What are the bleeds on a full page?
A: ½ inch top and bottom margins. ¾ inch left and right margins.
Q: What is the minimum/maximum pages length for submission?
A: 1 page minimum - 12 pages maximum
Q: Can I submit the work of someone else?
A: No. That’s illegal.
Q: We’re a writer/artist team. Can we submit together?
Q: How much am I paid?
A: Two copies of the finished anthology for the year in which you were an accepted/printed contributor.
Q: Are there royalties?
A: For 2012 & 2012 anthologies. No. Sorry. Why? I can't make that kind of promise, because if I break even, I’m going to be thrilled.
Q: Can you help me find a writer/artist to team up with for a submission?
A: No. But you can join one of our networks and solicit for a teammate there.
Q: Can I advertise with you?
A: On the website? Yes. In the anthology itself? No.
Q: Will you do an art/story review or critique of my portfolio/comic/webcomic?
A: The anthology itself can't provide that kind of service.
