Next Wednesday, 2nd July, Emma will join Ariel Kahn, Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at Roehampton University, in leading a workshop aimed at budding graphic novelists. Here’s the blurb:

“Pushing the Boundaries: From Pitch to Publication”

Whichever genre you choose to work in, discover how to push the limits of form to enhance the impact of your narrative. Learn how to create a professional script, approach publishers and target the right audience.

This is an intermediate to advance workshop aimed at those who already have a portfolio of work or a graphic novel in development. It includes exclusive after-hours entry to the Comics Unmasked exhibition.

The course takes place on Wednesday 2nd July, 18.30-20.30, at the British Library, 96 Euston Rd, London NW1 2DB. Price: £40 / £35 concessions.
