SpiderForest Webcomic Collective Accepting Applications in August

Our application season is underway!  Here’s the official scoop on our collective and the application process for our community.  We hope you’ll consider joining us if you’re a comic creator!

For Immediate Release
August 7, 2015

Contact: info@spiderforest.com

SpiderForest is an established webcomic collective run for and by independent comic creators for the purpose of community building, audience sharing, convention appearances, and personal and professional growth in comics. Applications for membership are accepted 1-2 times a year and are rigorously reviewed by all available members. For this round of admissions, applications will be accepted until August 22nd, and results are privately revealed to applicants on September 1st.

Since 2004, SpiderForest has offered a particular niche for webcomic creators who seek to remain independent, but also desire to be part of a tight-knit community of knowledgeable, experienced artists, writers and self-publishers. We are not a business, but instead are run entirely on a volunteer basis with a focus on helping each other grow professionally as we all best see fit. Our public and private forums offer constructive criticism, organized convention appearances, advice for crowdfunding, art exchanges or collaborations, and more. We are seeking dedicated creators who care more about their work than making a quick buck–but are definitely a good home for the professional-level comic creator. We want to help you become the comic professional you want to be, and we greatly value those who want to bring their experiences to us.

In addition to being a free host for all members, SpiderForest also accepts members who are unaffiliated with other collectives and are independently self-hosted. Members are free to maintain as many mirror sites as they wish on free comic hosts such as Comic Fury, Tapastic, and SmackJeeves, but are required to have the SpiderForest-affiliated site at least one update ahead. The only other requirements are to regularly update your comic(s), to display the SpiderForest banner, and to assist in reviewing applications for new members.

Questions regarding membership at SpiderForest are best directed to our forums (spiderforest.com/forum), to our email (info@spiderforest.com), or to individual members regarding their experiences with us (spiderforest.com/comics).

Welcome to the new website!

Hey guys, Delphina here! On behalf of the SpiderForest, I would like to welcome everyone to our new website! SpiderForest is a community of comic artists, writers, and creators. Our goal since our founding more than ten years ago has always been to create a community where comic creators and readers can gather, chat, and share our stories.

We’ve retooled our website a complete overhaul to better feature our announcements, crowdfunding campaigns, and convention appearances, as well as handy resources for webcomic creators that we’ve written, and of course, the comics and art we create for everyone to enjoy!

We hope you find the new site easy to use and fun to explore. Thank you!
