Submission Guidelines

Yen Press is interested in a broad spectrum of material and will happily review unsolicited graphic novel submissions of any sort although due to time constraints we may not be able to respond to each with anything other than a courteous note indicating that your submission was received. Rest assured that if we are interested, we will be contacting you!

GUIDELINES FOR WRITERS

Currently, Yen Press is not looking for original projects from writers who are not already working directly with an illustrator. Please do not send us your original concepts in the hopes that we will assign an illustrator to you. Such concept pitches will be deleted unread.

GUIDELINES FOR ARTISTS

Yen Press is interested in a wide variety of material in an equally wide variety of styles. Please feel free to submit your portfolio to us demonstrating as broad a range of your ability as possible. Ideally, you should include some samples of stills, original character designs and a minimum of five to ten pages of sequential art in various stages. Show us samples of your pencils, inks and coloring where applicable. Please also submit a copy of your résumé and indicate whether or not you are willing to work on assignment.

Perhaps most importantly, though, tell us what sorts of projects excite you!

GUIDELINES FOR PROJECT SUBMISSIONS

If you are interested in pitching a project to Yen Press, please include a project summary (indicating your intended audience), a plot outline complete with character descriptions and initial concept designs, and as above a minimum of five to ten pages of sequential art in various stages. This does not have to be final art for the project in question although that would be welcome.
