What does :01 mean?
Is it first? Or second?
First Second Third Fourth Fifth Sixth Seventh.
Pressing the reset button. A clean slate. A fresh start.
Everything begins with the First Second. . . .
The offices are in New York City, in the Flatiron Building where Fifth Avenue crosses Broadway, at 23rd Street. To be precise. But really, :01 comes to you from all over the world, since its creators are scattered all around America, all over Europe, Asia and Africa. So far, no one is making graphic novels for us in Antarctica, although we haven't checked the submissions pile today.
In Spring and Fall of each year. And you may start seeing some books in the winter! It's an exciting new thing for us!
At this time, First Second is no longer accepting unsolicited submissions. Please check back for future updates. Want more information about how our submissions process works? Check out our blog here and here.
:01 will consider original graphic novel projects in almost any genre, for any age. Fiction of all kinds, and non-fiction from visual essays to journalism and memoirs. Although not all our titles may be suitable to young readers, :01 does not publish pornography or books with gratuitous violence. We're interested in authors with a unique and sincere voice. The books we love best leave us in a generative place.
