Current Womanthology Contributor?: Writer on Womanthology: Heroic, script page in sketchbook

Tell us about yourself! - I moved out west for screenwriting, but comics have been taking up all my time as of late. Although I've been doing webcomics since 2006, print comics are still pretty new for me. I work at a local charity for my "day job". I'm addicted to tea, collecting things, and rescuing hamsters from animal shelters.

Goal in Comics: To write both creator-owned and shared-universe comics.

Tell us about yourself! - I'm a student at the University of Tampa and work a boring day job.

Hi all! Lovely to meet you

Name: Sally Jane Thompson

Location: UK

Skill Interests: Pencilling, Inking, Colour, Writing

Current Womanthology Contributor? (Heroic, Sketchbook, Holiday PDF): Artwork for Holiday PDF

Tell us about yourself! - I'm an early-career freelancer, doing artwork (full-process - I've never worked on a project that split the art duties, so that will be a new experience to have one day! ) for clients, and working on my own books when I have the chance. Most of my jobs are outside the book/comic industry, and I love using comics in interesting ways or contexts, but I'm hoping I can get more book work going forward. My own work tends towards gentle real-world-with-perhaps-a-magic-realist-slant type stuff, though I do love fairy tales and mythology, so I'll do something along those lines at some point

Goal in Comics: To create re-readable books that make some impact in readers lives (and/or just make people smile or think or feel in the meantime!)

Work Example:
Trying out a brush (vs brushpen) for inking

Natalie Zutter is on a distinguished road

Name: Natalie Zutter

Location: Brooklyn, NY

Skill Interests: Writing, Social Media

Current Womanthology Contributor? (Heroic, Sketchbook, Holiday PDF): Nope, but I hope to become one soon!

Tell us about yourself! - I'm a playwright, aspiring comic book writer, and pop culture blogger. I love telling stories, whether talking at a party or through theater and comics. In my day job, I write for Crushable (celebrities/movies) and Tor.com (sci-fi/fantasy). Whenever I can, I'm having theater staged around New York City and co-writing the webcomic Leftovers--about the crew of a ragtag food truck delivering food to survivors of the zombie apocalypse in NYC. Otherwise, I love tennis, going to screenings of cult movies like The Room, and cooking.

Goal in Comics: My dream is to have a creator-owned series with Vertigo, but I also love the work that Archaia and other independent publishers are doing. Above all, it's to get my stories out and dabble in different formats--web comic, ongoing series, graphic novel.

Work Sample: Our fantastic artist Alena Lane did the pencils/inks/coloring/lettering, and I wrote the script for this page:

Tell us about yourself! - I'm working as a graphic designer at the University of Athens, but I am a comic-junkie !!
I had published two comics ...a few centuries ago (which I then buried as deep as I could), then took a long hiatus and since 2008 I've contributed in various comic anthologies and I have self published a few comics. I'm currently drawing 2 graphic novels for Markosia: White Knuckle by Cy Dethan and Kindred Spirits with Maggie Lewinowicz, as well as a few more short stories for other anthologies. One of my self-published comic anthologies will also be translated/published by a Greek publisher soon, while I have signed to draw 2 more comics for next year !! wow, have I mentioned that I LOVE comics ?!

Whenever I'm not comicking, I like hanging out with my boy and Yuki, going out with my friends & family, reading books and comics, watching (horror) movies, dance to EBM, Synthpop, Industrial...

Goal in Comics: ALWAYS HAVING FUN creating comics !! Of course if any other people like my comics as well, it's also GREAT !!

Current Womanthology Contributor? (Heroic, Sketchbook): Writer

Tell us about yourself! - I love animation, independent comics, games (card/video/board), hiking, and road trips.

Greetings I'm Tali!

Name: Talisha Harrison aka Tali Adina
Location: Longwood, FL
Skill Interests: Writing
Current Womanthology Contributor? Writer for, Womanthology Volume One, Holiday PDF, and Valentine's Special.
Tell About Yourself: I'm a library technical assistant, I write poetry and I'm a new contributor to WhyNotIndie.com. I enjoy listening to music, watching films, reading, and my favorite color is purple.

Goals in comics: To write for some of my favorite comic titles as well as create and publish my own stories.

Website:http://thediaryofanovicecomicbookwriter.tumblr.com/

Work Example: Here's a page from my script that I'm currently working on: Tzedek "Time to Save a Life"
Page 11
Panel 1
It’s now 9 am Saturday morning
Tzedek is still passed out in the brush by the retention pond. She lies flat on her stomach in her burnt and tattered costume, her burnt skin now healed. Only her unhealed scar on her back remains.

CAP:
Nightmares. I always get them in the morning.
Panel 2
Sweat drops down her brow as she struggles to wake up.
CAP:
They keep me going, they keep me alive…
Panel 3
She awakens with a start and peels off her mask.
CAP:
I still want them to go away…
Panel 4
Minutes later, Tzedek is back in the apartment complex sitting in the car that the two men had pretended to work on. A few feet away she sees a mother tying her little girls’ shoe before putting her into the minivan.
CAP:
I use to have one of those when I was a kid…
CAP:
Mother..I used to know what that word meant.
Panel 5
Tzedek begins driving away.
CAP:
I saw it in action, I touched it and felt it, I loved it…
Panel 6
She continues to drive away leaving the mother and her child in the background. A tear escapes from her right eye.
CAP:
I used to talk to one as a child and then I was taken away from her…
CAP:
And then the nightmares began…
