Comic Creator Connection Returns to WonderCon Anaheim!
Are you a writer with a great idea for a comic book series, but you can't draw? Or maybe you're an artist looking to illustrate a story and you can’t write. Perhaps both of you are looking to jumpstart your careers in comics. At WonderCon Anaheim 2015, you just might find each other!
WonderCon Anaheim will once again host the Comic Creator Connection, an event that puts writers and artists together to see whether they can find their creative counterparts. Here's how it works: in two 2-hour sessions—on Friday, April 3, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM and Sunday, April 5, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM—writers and artists can sit down and meet each other in a neutral environment. In 5-minute sessions, you can talk one-on-one with individual prospective collaborators about their ideas and skills. At the end of each 5-minute period, you will get up and move on to the next person. If you're interested in furthering the conversation, you place your contact info (name and e-mail address) on a supplied card for that prospective partner.
