Writing For Toon
Toon Writers' Guideline Supplement
Last Updated: September 24, 1998
Dear Potential Toon Writers:
Hi! We're definitely interested in Toon contributions from silly people . . . You must read and follow our general writers' guidelines, but here's some specific information. (For short submissions, like individual gadgets, you don't need to send a query letter or a proposal. Just hit us with the submission. But remember, without a SASE, we won't return it, or acknowledge it at all unless we use it.)
Look at our existing Toon books. That's what we want! Send us:
What We Pay:
For a short submission (individual gadgets, characters, and so on) we'll list you on the title page and send you a copy of the book.
For a longer submission (several gadgets or characters, at least a thousand words total) we will also pay 2 cents a word, plus a copy of the book. Or you can take 4 cents a word in credit from our Direct Mail department.
For a whole adventure, or the equivalent: As above, except the title-page listing is more prominent and you get three copies of the book.
For a whole book - or so much of a whole book that you are obviously One Of The Writers - we give cover credit and a royalty, plus your free copies.
