Next Call for Submissions: January 2019!

Comics Experience offers a publishing program in partnership with Source Point Press, and we’re opening a new submissions window this January! If you’re eligible to submit to our publishing program, we encourage you to start getting your project ready — we’d love to hear from you.

Submissions are open to those who have participated in our courses, mentoring program, or Creators Workshop, and meet other eligibility guidelines. For full details and more general info about our publishing program, visit our publishing page here!

If you’re a Creators Workshop member, you can also access a dedicated online Publishing Q&A discussion forum, as well as a recorded Town Hall meeting with CE’s Andy Schmidt and Source Point’s Travis McIntire. There, the pair offer their own feedback and insight into how our publishing process works.

Since announcing our partnership with Source Point in January 2018, we’re pleased to have helped produce a number of unique projects developed and workshopped within the CE community — including these titles, available this October 4 through 7 at New York Comic Con:

WILD STRAWBERRIES by Bruce Kim and Katia Vecchio


HALUS by Chris Clark, Atung Yupas, and Owen Welsh
THE LOVE SHE OFFERED by Glenn Moane and Tirso Llaneta


GUTTER MAGIC HARDCOVER EDITION by Rich Douek, Brett Barkley, Jules Rivera, and Nic J. Shaw

Titles currently available in print are listed here!

Many of these books’ creators started their journey to publication right here within the Comics Experience community. We’re proud of them, and proud to have had a role in their achievements! Info about our courses and other programs is available throughout our site, and we hope you’ll check them out.

We look forward to receiving and reviewing new submissions in January!

If you want to make comics, write, draw, letter, and color comics, or improve as a comics creator, you’ll find like-minded friends and colleagues in our online workshops and courses. We hope to see you there!
