A press release for a good cause:
Prism Comics is proud to announce the second annual Queer Press Grant. The grant, in the amount of $1,000 this year, was established to help and encourage LGBT creators to self-publish LGBT themed comics. The winner of last year’s award, Steve MacIsaac, used the grant to self-publish Shiftlifter, which debuted at the 2006 Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco and is for sale at his website: http://stevemacisaac.com.
“Prism Comics is thrilled to be able to offer the Queer Press Grant for a second year,” said Prism Comics Public Relations Chair David Stanley. “We were amazed last year at the high level of talent who submitted work and we’re very proud that we were able to help the winner, Steve MacIsaac, publish his work.”
The application deadline for the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant is October 1 and the winner will be announced November 1.
