Driftwood Press Graphic Novels

Submission Page

Driftwood Press is currently open for graphic novel and comic collection submissions! We love experimental, narrative, and hybrid work, and we're looking for something that impresses us formally and conceptually. Some of our favorite graphic artists are Jaime & Gilbert Hernandez, Brecht Evens, Taiyo Matsumoto, Anders Nilsen, Jillian Tamaki, Olivier Schrauwen, Joshua Cotter, Eleanor Davis, Gipi, Simon Hanselmann, Michael DeForge, David Lapham, and Inio Asano. Please do not send us superhero narratives or scripts without an artist attached.

What to Submit

  • You may submit either a full or partial manuscript. We prefer to see the full manuscript.

  • Please do not send us scripts. Please note: we do not match up artists with storytellers or vice-versa.

  • Although your work may be independently published, we tend to prefer that the work is either unpublished or this book offers something the previous publication did not, such as additional pages or a different grouping of the work.

If a few months have passed since submission, feel free to email us for an update.
