Shhh… The Nib magazine’s second issue for 2021, will be on SECRETS.
Got secret knowledge? Family secrets? A skeleton in your closet? We want to hear about it!
We’re looking for nonfiction comics that explore the theme of “Secrets” in creative ways, through journalism, history, memoir, explainers, and satire. All variety of secret stories — we’re interested in trade secrets, military secrets, secret lovers, secret dramas, spies, the fallout when secrets are revealed and everything beyond that. We want to hear secret stories that stop your heart, unravel accepted norms, change lives, make you laugh like crazy or that just feel… relatable.
Please shape your pitch for a specific section of the magazine:
Dispatches: Think short! These 8–10 panel pieces of nonfiction journalism, explainers, interviews, history and memoir tell pointed stories in a concise way.
Features: These 5–10 page (20–40 panel) pieces of nonfiction journalism, explainers, interviews, history and memoir are the heart of The Nib magazine.
Strips: Single page satire. Is what it says on the box.
Each issue also features a variety of front of the book matter and interstitial art — so if you have an unconventional idea that doesn’t fit into the above categories, it could be just what we’re looking for.
