March 2015 – November 2016
This is one of a series of workshops I’m running with Library Press, an organisation that works with libraries, and supports people in creating and publishing their own books.
So you’re writing a comic? Now what? Self-publishing is the best way to get your work seen and get into the comics industry. In this workshop, learn how to plan your book or zine, prepare it for print, and assemble it yourself. We will make and print our own anthology with a copy for everyone to take home. Plus get some top tips about producing, pricing and selling your new product. This workshop is run by Karen Rubins, a writer and artist with years of experience in small-press, indie, and professional comics.
Comics Plus is a library service where you can borrow digital comics and read them on your computer or device. And it’s all free! So to celebrate this amazing technological advancement, come to Hounslow and Heston libraries for a very low-fi comics workshop!
Join Karen Rubins, artist of The Phoenix Comic’s Shivers series, to make your own comics! Create the scariest monster you can think of, and a hero to confront it, then write and draw your own comic strip to decide what happens when they meet.
This session is open to children 7 – 11 years old and their parents or carers. Come and create awesome collaborations!
