Hallowscream! 2010 Special Submission Guidelines

by M.I.K.

Following the success of the Back From The Depths Hallowscream Special in 2009, we’ve decided to do it all again this year. That means we’re once again looking for contributors. Here’s this year’s guidelines, (barely altered from last year’s guidelines ‘cos I’m feeling incredibly lazy)…

Ideal submissions should be horror orientated and must be weird or spooky to make the final cut. We are mainly looking for completed comic strips between 1-7 pages in length. Script submissions should also preferably be around 1-7 psges in length. Eerie illustrations and artwork along with interesting horror/comic articles, scary short stories, petrifying poems or anything just plain creepy will also be considered.

If you’re an artist looking to illustrate a script, get in contact and we’ll give you details of what might require your skills.

We’ll also consider material previously published elsewhere, as long as the contributors own the copyright.

Completed artwork can be either colour or black and white, and should preferably be A4 (21cm x 29.7cm) 300 dpi jpegs.

Submissions can be sent to malcolm_iain_kirk@yahoo.co.uk or you can join the ning group and upload stuff there if you prefer.

As this is a non-profit, small press publication, contributors will not be paid but they will retain copyright on any material submitted.


Scripts, articles and text submissions : Saturday 24th July

Artwork : Saturday 9th October

Completed strips : Saturday 23rd October.

The finished issue will be available online for free on October 31st.

    Hmm… I think it might be best to leave them out of the special just to be on the safe side, (we might make some hard copies at some point and I wouldn’t want to risk it).

    However… we might be able to stick your stories up on the site somewhere. I doubt there’d be much complaint from Egmont about a fan-made story that’s only available online, and if there is, it’d be easy enough to just take the stories offline again.

    If that sounds okay, send them to the email address mentioned above and I’ll have a look.
