Submission Guidelines for Writers
Velamma is now accepting scripts for comics. We welcome submissions from writers of any level of experience, regardless of their background in comics. Please do read our guidelines carefully before submitting the scripts. Please feel free to contact us at the below form, if you have any questions.
Before submitting your script, please contact us through the below form with a pitch and two pages of your proposed comic script to go with the pitch. The pitch is a one-paragraph summary of the story that you would like to write. Please provide details so that we have a good idea of the story and how it will work in comic form.
The scripts and pitch must be for one-shots (a single issue comic) which can be completed in 30 pages or less. If you do not have a background in comics, we highly recommend Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics as a great place to start.
Upon acceptation of your pitch, you’ll be asked to send us a script which conforms to our standards. Please note that acceptation of a pitch does not guarantee that we will buy the final script. Velamma can reject scripts if they don’t meet our basic criteria.
