Comic serial creators

Comic serial submissions are now open.

Each year The School Magazine runs at least two comic serials in each issue of the magazine. We publish fantasy, humour, folktales, historical drama, sci-fi and a mixture of these genres. Our readers love humour and are in the 8-12 year old reading age range, so material must be appropriate and appeal to readers across this age range.


Comic serials can be:

  • a single-page serial in ten parts or
  • a two-page serial in ten parts (20 single pages total, no double spreads).

Submission guidelines

Interested comic serial creators should submit their proposed comic serial digitally, including:

  • a written synopsis of the comic serial, including episode breakdowns. (Rough art to explain key points can be incorporated.)
  • episode 1 to finished art stage (page dimensions are 185mm x 240mm).
  • character sheet with rough or finished art, introducing key characters.

Submit your comic serial submission to the Editorial Team's email at: [email protected] by Sunday 1st July 2021!
