So what will all those newly promoted editors at Oni be doing? Reading a lot of email it seems. A new open submissions period has been announced. It’s good to see Oni getting back into the game a bit, especially with the diversity that they always supported becoming the industry norm.
Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today they will begin accepting submissions and pitches in May. Under this policy all writers, artists, cartoonists, and colorists seeking to publish their work with Oni Press will be able to submit their portfolio to the Oni Press editorial team.
Oni Press will accept submissions electronically through email. Creators whose submissions are selected for follow up will be contacted within a designated length of time. Further specific details on the process and where to submit will be released this May.
“We are on the hunt for new stories from new creators, featuring characters that reflect the diversity of the world around us,” added Editor-in-Chief James Lucas Jones. “Oni Press has always valued content and execution, and we are looking for creators and projects that can support our goal to publish excellent, varied, and original work.”
