J WOC deadlines are now ongoing

March 1, 2008 update: I’ll publish when I have 60-70 pages of material. Please send your work in based on the guidelines below, thanks, and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

Here are the templates for The Journal of Women on Comics in MS Word or Rich Text Format or Plain Text. I’ll need the information at the top of the template. Don’t worry about how it looks, I’ll be formatting up a storm in the final document.

The first issue of the Journal of Women On Comics is a print compilation of women writing on comics online (or in print, if it’s not a copyright violation) or original, previously unpublished non-fiction up through December 31, 2007. If you’ve published or have an unpublished essay, interview, analysis, reviews, histories, original comics about women writing on comics, or whatever before 12/31/2007 and would like to submit it for J WOC’s consideration, please use one of the templates below. I’d prefer MS Word, but I know not everyone uses it. Please edit and proof your submission before you submit it, J WOC won’t do any editing or proofing, so it would be good if your submission was as close to perfect as possible when it gets here. Authors retain their copyright. J WOC has permission to use the material for the volume it’s published in.

My criteria is simple: I’ll publish anything by a woman identified woman about comics, graphic novels, the industry, culture, etc. that I like and won’t get me sued.

I look forward to your submission(s). Please email your edited, proofed and formatted document to editor AT j-woc DOT info Also feel free to contact me if you’d like more information or just to chat. I’m on Skype at ginger.mayerson.

Please see the Misc link for Fair Use, C&D, advertising policies, etc.

I know print is a little old fashioned, but I’d love to be able to hand out physical copies of J WOC. I think it would be a great collection of great writing by women about comics.
