Creating Comics: Colin Maxwell to talk “Writing War Stories”

War Stories - Writing Commando Comics with Colin Maxwell
Tuesday 21st November 2023

Join comics writer Colin Maxwell for a special, free online event next month, hosted by Company of Makers‘ co-founder Steve Bomford, who will explain how self-publishing works and the ways to distribute and sell those comics.

Colin will also explain his writing process, from initial ideas to research and final script, as well as looking at the differences between writing true stories and fictional ones.

Maybe you have a story of your own to tell, but writing a novel seems like a daunting task. Perhaps a comic book could prove to be a more effective way of getting your story out there.

Colin’s talk will be followed by an interactive Q&A session, so you’ll have the opportunity to get involved and he’ll answer as many of your questions as we can squeeze in.
