Submissions are now CLOSED!
Thank you to all who submitted in our Sept submissions period! We have now SENT OUT ALL RESPONSES, so if you didn’t receive a reply, please write to email@example.com to let us know.
The second and final round of review (for those of you who made it to Round Two) will be taking place in Jan/Feb. You can expect another reply from us in the next month or two as we make our final decisions. Thank you for your patience!
As many of you know, Sparkler is frequently looking for new serials and short stories to publish, and we consider creators of any gender, background, or experience level. (We also pay advances.) If you’re interested in submitting a pitch for a comic or prose story in the future, you can read the document below:
Submission Guidelines PDF (updated for Sept 2016 submissions)
It includes valuable information on our target audience, serial format, workload for creators, and specifics for submission.
Note: In honor of the Sept 2016 submissions, we’ve opened the paywall on our first Sparkler School tutorial for creators: Storytelling 101. There are some additional articles you can download in the Member Exclusives pack (free for Sparkler members) that may help you: Pitching to Sparkler: New tips for aspiring creators and a few other Sparkler School tutorials that were all written by our editors. Reading those are NOT necessary for anyone who wants to pitch; all the info you genuinely need is here, and you can ask anything else below. But for those of you who want a little more structured coaching, especially new creators, those articles may help.
