Have you ever wanted to be a professional comics creator? Or are you a professional looking to take your career to the next level? Perhaps you’d like to be working for a major publisher, or publishing your own comics?
This could be the event for you. It’s called Comics Uncovered and it’s at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre on 7th-8th July 2018. It’s just the sort of thing I’d have needed many years ago, as dreams of becoming a cartoonist and comic creator were generally given a cold stare by frumpy career officers.
“In the UK there are limited paths to careers for you,” Comics Uncovered state. They know this, because they’ve trodden the same road themselves.
Their mission is to help you take those first steps, or perhaps even the most important steps, on that path and Comics Uncovered features over a dozen seminars, workshops, demos and master-classes conducted by top professionals, all aimed at creative people like you.
Guest Speakers include influential professionals from across the world of Comics and over the two days you will have the opportunity to join both short two hour workshops and full weekend courses plus everything in between.
Some events are for beginners, whilst some are for more advanced creators.
There are also ones to one portfolio reviews with editors, meetings with distributors for self publishers and a catered networking party in the evenings to help you secure those valuable connections made during the day.
This year they are also hosting a Self Publishing Summit for independent creators and self publishers to discuss ideas for producing and promoting their work, and to learn more about branding and marketing their own intellectual properties.
If you are serious about a career in comics and graphic novels then Comics Uncovered is the one essential event on the calendar for you every other year!
