  1. Developing graphic novels
    Evening
    Course start date:  Mon 23 Jun 2025 (and 2 other dates)

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  Stephen Marchant
    Our 'Developing' courses help you take your next step in your chosen creative field.







    Comics – once considered lowbrow, or seen as exclusively for children, now occupy a higher cultural domain. Partly thanks to a re-brand, (as ‘Graphic Novels’), no weighty subject is off-limits. A graphic novel has even been nominated for The Booker Prize!







    Alongside official publishing channels, exists a lively ‘zine’ culture, where comic and graphic-novel artists can legitimately self-publish and sell their work through a network of independent shops and fairs.







    Learn how to create Comics and Graphic-novels with City Lit, and – once you have developed your practice – how to navigate this thriving sector.
