This is a friendly reminder that your first submission for Three Words, our anthology of NZ women’s comics, is due by 31st October.
To reiterate, at this stage we’re asking for up to three pages of comics. These can be existing or new works, black and white or colour, one long story, several short strips, or single-panel images. The files need to be jpgs, tiffs or pdfs, at 300dpi and A4 size (210mm x 297mm). You also need to let us know if and where your submission has appeared previously, in print or online.
Please send the above to threewords AT outlook DOT co DOT nz
We will let you know by 10 November if your submission has been successful, and the process for next steps.
Feedback to the idea for this NZ women’s anthology has been overwhelmingly positive, with recognition from within the comic, arts and literary sectors that Three Words is an important and necessary book.
We do you need your comics to make it happen however and encourage you to submit!
If you have issues with the timeframe, or any other aspect of the project, please contact us (at the same email address) and we’ll endeavour to work these through. Also, do not be shy about submitting existing works. We are very keen to showcase the amazing but little seen history of NZ women’s comics in the book.
So looking forward to seeing your work,
Rae, Sarah and Indira
