Laydeez Do Comics – This coming Monday, Sept. 28th, 6:30-9pm

What are you doing on Monday evening?

If you’re in or around Leeds, you should be going to Laydeez do Comics. One of the speakers is Lydia Wysocki – co-founder with myself and Ian Horton of the Applied Comics Network, founder of Applied Comics Etc., educator, artist, editor, publisher and all-round great comics person to know.

Lydia’s going to be talking about two of her most recent Applied Comics Etc. projects. The first is Spineless, a comic about invertebrates created in partnership with the Great North Museum and the Hancock’s ‘Spineless’ exhibition. Lydia’s going to talk about working with guest curators/researchers and the seven comics creators involved in the project. The second project is  True War Stories, a World War I local history project in partnership with the Thomas Baker Brown archive as part of Newcastle University Library Special Collections.

There are two other speakers on the programme: Ross Mackintosh (Seeds) and Emma Donnelly (A Fat Girls Guide To Life: How to Get Through a Breakup), so it will be a great night. Laydeez is always a great event – if you’ve never been before, this is a great opportunity to find out just why Laydeez is so popular.

So, get down to Wharf Chambers in Leeds (LS2 7EQ) this coming Monday, 28th September between 6.30-9pm. Everyone is welcome – £1.50 on the door.
