Breaking into comic books is a near impossible feat. There are countless other writers and artists vying for a few paying positions in a medium that’s engulfed in high turnover rates and long hours. That still doesn’t stop people from pursuing their dreams, and DC comics is trying to help. DC has launched Talent Development Workshops for writers and artists who aspire to work at one of the big two.

Some of the best talent at DC Entertainment will be teaching these workshops, like Jim Lee and Scott Snyder, who have worked on nearly every DC title from Batman to Green Lantern. Other titans of the industry working on this program include Andy Kubert, Geoff Johns and Klaus Johnson. Geoff Johns said to Cosmic Book News : “The new DC Talent Development Workshops will play a vital role in discovering and developing the next generation of comic talent.” When you finish the Master class program DCE’s Talent Development will try and find you a place at the house that created Superman

Artist applications will be accepted from April 1 to April 30, while writers can submit from May 1 to May 31. You need to send a resume, a short under-2000 character composition, a few published writing samples, a letter of recommendation- which is optional- and a completed submission agreement. Keep in mind that DC does not want any characters from their echelon; they want new characters and ideas from you.

If you have any aspiration to be a great like Alan Moore or Jack Kirby you should apply, there’s nothing to lose and everything to gain.
