Nicola Streeten and Cath Tate at Birmingham Literature Festival


Join Myriad authors Nicola Streeten and Cath Tate as they share with you The Inking Woman, published by Myriad this year. The Inking Woman is a wide-ranging curation of women’s comics work includes prints, caricatures, joke, editorial and strip cartoons, postcards, comics, zines, graphic novels and digital comics, covering all genres and topics. It addresses inclusion of art by women of underrepresented backgrounds, spanning 250 years.

‘Indispensable and obligatory, The Inking Woman is an absolute triumph on every level.’ Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier.

Nicola Streeten is an anthropologist-turned-illustrator and comics scholar. She is the author of Billy, Me & You (Myriad, 2011), an acclaimed graphic memoir about bereavement. Streeten is co-founder of Laydeez do Comics, a graphic novel forum with a focus on the new wave of comic work based on the drama of everyday life.

Cath Tate is the founder of Cath Tate Cards which she set up in the early 1980s initially to produce political and feminist postcards.

This event is part of The Birmingham Literature Festival, a project of  Writing West Midlands, the literature development agency for the region. The festival runs from the 4th – 14th October.
