Get The Know-How To Become A Freelance Comic Writer
Memories take me back to my childhood where you could buy and swap second-hand books and comics from the local store. There were thousands of comics and it would take me hours each Saturday morning to go through the well-worn editions of Archie, Betty and Veronica, Marvel Legacy, and Ginger.

Presented by the Storytelling Through Comics Panel, this event will look at how comic creators get their story ideas, the art of creating a good storyline and what comics you should read to your children. There will be plenty of time to ask questions. This discussion commences at 6.00pm.

For your enjoyment, live music will be performed by geek pop singer-songwriter Meri Amber during the evening.
