Prism Webcomics is a weekly showcase for original stories featuring LGBT characters or themes. Please note that we are NOT interested in stories with explicit sex, nudity, or foul language -- a good rule of thumb is to follow broadcast television standards. PrismComics.org is a website visited by kids as well as adults, and we don't want our Webcomics to be restricted to adults only. Contributors may choose to provide a completed story, script-only, or art-only. If you are a writer looking for an artist to collaborate with (or vice versa), you can check out our Creators section for possible leads. We also have contact information for other interested volunteer writers and artists who might not have published creator profiles that we can provide to you.
We suggest that contributors follow the submission process below when proposing webcomics:
CONTRIBUTION LEVEL: you intend to provide a complete story (either alone or with someone you've already lined up), script-only, or art-only. Copyright is shared by all contributors to a particular story, so approval of all parties must be obtained if that story is to be used for another website or in a print publication. Contributors who wish to provide art for a completed script should submit a sample of their work.
PLOT: synopsis, character descriptions, and the story length. From one to six pages is acceptable, although--since only one page is posted each week--each page should have enough content to grab the interest of a casual reader who might not have seen the previous installment. Please do not submit a finished story without first getting approval for the plot from the editor, as the contribution may be rejected if it includes nudity, graphic sexual situations or strong language, or otherwise is deemed unsuitable for publication on the Prism Comics website.
SCRIPT: format should be "full script" with panel-by-panel descriptions of actions and scenery on each page. Even if you are a writer teaming with an artist, or if you are writing and drawing a story yourself, you MUST submit a copy of the script for approval before proceeding to the art stage (otherwise, if we need to make changes, you might have to re-do parts of your art).
ART: web-ready art should be JPGs or GIFs at 72 dpi. This is the finished product and must include coloring (if any) and lettering. Width and height of the webcomic page may vary. If you plan to publish the story in printed form at some point, though, you should keep that size in mind; print comics are typically 6.5" x 10", give or take a quarter-inch. Also bear in mind that 72 dpi will be insufficient for print quality; work in a higher resolution (300 or higher), make a copy when you're finished, and reduce it to 72 dpi to publish as a webcomic.
