Creative Women, Creative Business: Feminist Publishing, Design and Comix

A free, three day mini-festival from 13 – 15 January, showcasing the past, present and future of feminist publishing and creativity.
Brought to you by The Business of Women’s Words: Purpose and Profit in Feminist Publishing team, in partnership with The British Library, this fantastic line up of practical workshops and energising talks will ignite your creative feminist visions.
LDComics founder and Myriad author Nicola Streeten will be introducing the audience to the history of comics as part of feminist activism, offering everyone the opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade and create their own comic.

Dr Nicola Streeten is an anthropologist-turned-illustrator and comics scholar. She is the author of Billy, Me & You, and co-editor with Cath Tate to The Inking Woman. Offering a 250 year illustrated history of women’s cartooning in the UK, this is complemented by Nicola’s award-winning theoretical publication UK Feminist Cartoons and Comics: A Critical Survey.

This is a live online event. You only need to book once to receive a separate link for each event. Links to join sessions will be sent to bookers in advance, and they will remain available to view for seven days. Watch as many or few as you want. Everything is free.
