comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick started #VisibleWomen on twitter to give female artists and writers the visibility we (many times) don’t have but desperately need.
i recommend following the hashtag to discover new talents (i’ve met like 200+ amazing women today in just a few hours!), and also if you’re a writer, illustrator, cartoonist, comic creator…etc, tweet at her using that hashtag because she’s being super kind and supportive and is signal boosting everyone.
We’re doing another round of #VisibleWomen on AUGUST 7th 2017. This time we’re opening submissions up to include women* colorists, letterers and writers as well.
So you have time to prepare, it works like this:
Tweet your portfolio link(s) in the appropriate format below with the hashtag #VisibleWomen *any time on August 7th.*
We will signal boost the tweet AND add your info to our #visiblewomen spreadsheet, which is available free of charge to any hiring professional in the comic book industry.
The goals of the initiative are to raise the visibility of women in our industry and to get you work.
Here are some templates for tweets that will be easy for us to put in our spreadsheet.
IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST: I’m [your professional name - even if it matches your Twitter handle], I draw [a couple words about style or titles of works you’ve done] & my portfolio is at [link/links]. I also [color/letter/flat/write].
IF YOU ARE A LETTER: I’m [your professional name - even if it matches your Twitter handle], I lettered [title of book(s)]. Resume & work samples are online at [link/links].
IF YOU ARE A COLORIST: I’m [your professional name - even if it matches your Twitter handle], I color[ed] [title of book(s)]. Resume & work samples are online at [link/links]. [I also flat for other colorists.]
IF YOU ARE A WRITER: I’m [your professional name - even if it matches your Twitter handle], I wrote [title of book(s)], which is available online at [link/links]. [My resume with more of my work is LINK.]
140 characters is not a lot, so if you can include a word or two about your style, GREAT! If not, give us enough to get us started.
If you just want the signal boost for readers or visibility, you can play looser withe the format. For instance, “My name is [name], I’m the cartoonist behind the webcomic [name and link]. We’re a [mecha/horror/romance] - check us out!”
IMPORTANT: SELF SUBMISSIONS ONLY. It’s GREAT that you want to support your friends, but do not submit for them. We don’t want to risk signal-boosting someone who does not yet feel ready.
Join us on Twitter on August 7th. If you have questions in the meantime, either hit me on Twitter @kellysue or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
* #VisibleWomen is intended to raise the profiles of women** comic creators, but we also welcome (and have always welcomed) non-binary creators too. If you identify as “not male” and would like to participate, please do!
** Because we’ve gotten the question every time we’ve done this, yes, trans women are welcome. Trans women are women. We also welcome short women and tall women. We don’t want to add to anyone’s anxiety around gender identity. No one is going to ask for papers – if you know yourself to be a woman (or not a man), and could use a signal boost, please join us!
