Since its launch by Nicola Streeten and Sarah Lightman in 2009, Laydeez Do Comics has been the UK's foremost women-led graphic novel forum. Its focus on domestic and autobiographical narratives and the drama of the everyday, and its social evenings provide a friendly and inspiring atmosphere for emerging artists and established practitioners to test new works and ideas. All are welcome: men and women; those with no knowledge of comics and those already immersed. Home-baked cakes are served too!
This month's speakers are:
Kate Evans: cartoonist and activist: publications include Bump, The Food of Love and Funny Weather (all Myriad Editions)
Kate on Twitter
Paddy Johnston: comics artist and scholar
Paddy on Twitter
Matilda Tristram: illustrator and author of Probably Nothing: A Diary of Not-Your-Average Nine Months
Matilda on Twitter
Tickets available here - Laydeez Do Comics is free but welcomes a £1 donation for home-made cake!
