Hallowscream! has put out the call for submissions for their ninth issue. If you’re just starting out as a writer or artist, and you want to break into comics, Hallowscream! is the perfect place to start.
It’s an online horror themed small press anthology which can be viewed for free online.
Submissions for writers were due on July 31st, submissions for artists are due on the 17th of October and completed strips can be submitted on the 24th of October.
If you want to submit, I’d advise that if you’re a writer, that you find an artist, and if you’re an artist, that you find a writer.
Things usually come together a lot more easily when you put together a creative team yourself.
The submissions guidelines can be found here; http://www.backfromthedepths.co.uk/thetheatreofterror/2017/blah/hallowscream-nightmarish-ninth-issue-submission-guidelines/
If you want to hone your craft, you do it through practice, and Hallowscream! offers a wonderful opportunity to work with an editor.
I’d advise reading past issues to see the kind of strips that Hallowscream! accepts; http://www.backfromthedepths.co.uk/hallowscream/
You’ll find a strip written by me titled ‘Tomb World’ in issue #8.
