He’s a guest at next months London Film and Comic Con and he’s at the tail end of his tenure on Marvel’s Star Wars comics line after his superb run on the main title and now we hear that on Wednesday 5 February 2020 at The Guardian, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9GU from 6.30pm-9.30pm Kieron will be giving a writing masterclass.
If you have an idea or concept for your own comic, but aren’t sure how to break into a seemingly closed industry, this masterclass with Marvel’s Kieron Gillen is for you. The writer of a huge range of comics – including the critically acclaimed The Wicked + The Divine, and Marvel Comics’ Young Avengers – Kieron will give you the advice he wishes he had heard at the start of his career.
Combining anecdotes, practical takeaways and a breaking down of individual stories and pages (plus Q&A), Kieron will take you through how to construct your jump-off point into a strong story, how the industry works – and doesn’t work, how to maintain your unique voice and style in a process that might involve more opinions than you’re used to – and more.
This is a unique opportunity to hear from one of the leading comic book writers in the world. If you’re in the early stages of crafting your own comic, you’re trying to get yours to land in a difficult industry, or if you simply have a story to tell, this is an unmissable chance to have your questions answered, and – more importantly – be on your way to realising your comic writing dream.
