In advance of Graphic Brighton 2022, which will be on the topic of comics by and for young people, the University of Brighton will be running four FREE ‘Saturday Clubs’ on March 12th, 19th, 26th and April 2nd 2022 from 10am to 2pm with a break for lunch, run by a team of lecturers and creators who have taught and made comics themselves, including young Brighton graphic novelist Coco Kirkland (Project Immortality).

If you’re a 13 to 16-year-old living in the Brighton area and would like to learning about making comics, this course might be ideal for you! With sessions on creating characters, planning stories, and how to lay out a comic book page, these workshops are a brilliant way of find out more about how comics are made, with the intent of creating your own short comic, which will then be published in an anthology and exhibited on campus.

Please watch these videos by Coco Kirkland, and University of Brighton lecturer Barbara Chamberlin to find out why comics are a great to express yourself creatively…
