Driftwood Press Graphic Novels
Over the past five years, we’ve had the pleasure of bringing you a quarterly magazine featuring some of the best poetry, fiction, and visual arts on the web. As we transitioned to the new, biannual release schedule, we branched out in the form of contests, an editing service, and chapbook publications; now, we’re proud to announce open submissions for graphic novel manuscripts, which will burgeon our ever-growing catalog.
Some of our favorite graphic artists are Jaime & Gilbert Hernandez, Joe Sacco, Brecht Evens, Taiyo Matsumoto, Anders Nilsen, Jillian Tamaki, Olivier Schrauwen, Eleanor Davis, Gipi, Simon Hanselmann, Michael DeForge, David Lapham, and Inio Asano. Please do not send us superhero narratives or scripts without an artist attached.
What to Submit
You may submit either a full or partial manuscript. We prefer to see the full manuscript.
Please do not send us scripts. Please note: we do not match up artists with storytellers or vice-versa.
