A Graphic War
We are delighted to announce that with support from Arts Council England, QueenSpark Books is delivering a two year WWI project in which young people (aged between 15 - 25) will create a fictional, Brighton based WWI Graphic Novel.
QueenSpark is offering up to 15 young people aged 15 - 25, the opportunity to take part in a FREE Graphic Novel workshop. Hosted by the project's mentors: Tim Pilcher and Paul Collicutt, from 10am-1pm at Jubilee Library on the 25th April. Please e-mail admin (at) queensparkbooks.org.uk to book a place.
Following on from the immense success of BRIGHTON: The Graphic Novel - which is still a bestseller and was long listed for the 2014 British Comic Awards - the WWI project will use the history of Brighton & Hove as its starting point.
From March 2015, young people aged 15 -25 will be recruited as writers and artists. No previous experience is necessary, but a commitment to working as part of a team for one year is required. The young people will also be supported to achieve their Silver Arts Award as part of their involvement. A full colour graphic novel featuring the work of sixteen young people will be published by QueenSpark in Autumn 2016.
