It’s probably the question we get asked most at conventions—how did you get your job at DC?

You may be a talented artist or know how to tell a story. You might go to conventions and have friends who work in the industry. You could possibly know our characters better than you know your family. (Don’t worry, we won’t tell!) You might be doing everything right and still never make the leap from making comics as a very time-consuming hobby to making them for a major publisher.

But thanks to our new DC Talent Development Workshops, that may be about to change. If you have the ideas, desire and talent to tell stories featuring our characters, you just need a way to get your work across the finish line, these workshops can help. Led by a stable of DC Comics writers and artists including Scott Snyder, Jim Lee, Geoff Johns, Klaus Janson and Andy Kubert, they’re designed help you develop your artistic or written voice and give you unprecedented access to get your work seen and considered by DC’s editorial team.

Are you a published comics or fiction writer? Then this is your time! Applications for DC’s Writers Workshop are now being accepted. Find all the information on what we're looking for right here. Are you an artist? Unfortunately, the application window for our 2016 Artists Workshop has closed. But keep an eye on the DC Comics Talent Workshop website for information on next year's workshop:

We look forward to being thrilled by your words. Who knows? The next time the question about working for DC comes up, you might just be the one answering it.
