Description

The University of Brighton and Myriad Editions present an evening and day of graphic novelists and comic creators who all ‘draw in the margins’, their work giving voice to otherwise marginalised or under-represented groups. The 20 creators who will be presenting their work, alongside questions from academics, will be showing how comics are a brilliant medium for displaying the lives of people whose stories are rarely told in the medium, such as pregnant women, people with autism, those of a minority ethnic background and much more.
