Nottingham Does Comics returns to Nottingham Writers’ Studio on Tuesday 14th November at 7.30pm with an event featuring Jade Sarson, Sally Jane Thompson and Myriad Editions publisher Corrine Pearlman, All of this introduced by the wonderful Josh Franks, on-line editor of INK Magazine.
Nottingham Does Comics is a bi-monthly forum by and for anybody interested in reading, creating, publishing, selling or studying new work and new horizons in the comics medium. It is a platform where those curious about comics can explore and exchange ideas with established and aspiring practitioners, where the mainstream meets the indies, and where embryonic projects will be supported to find their wings.
NDC evenings feature two or three guest presentations designed to inspire, with plenty of time for Q&As, chat and being sociable. They are free events but a £2 donation will be appreciated.
