Black Mermaid Productions’ director Julie Ditrich will be presenting a one day seminar in Sydney in May 2014 entitled “The Comics Business: From Idea to Print”, which is part of the Australian Society of Authors’ (ASA) professional development program.
The course will guide participants through the process of creating a comic book or graphic novel from story development and scripting to assembling a creative team, art production, pitching to publishers, self publishing, distribution and marketing.
Participants will gain an understanding of the end-to-end comics creation and production process, as well as the workings of the Australian pop culture scene. They will also learn how to manage relationships with artists, designers, printers, editors and other key parties involved in the successful publication of a comic book or graphic novel.
