After the success of last year’s sessions, Broken Frontier’s Editor-in-Chief Andy Oliver (that’s me!) will again be offering a small number of one-to-one Zoom meet-ups with artists nearer the beginning of their comics journeys to look at work-in-progress, discuss self-publishing and the UK small press scene, and to give advice about raising your profile and getting attention for your work. These will run in the style of the old ELCAF Springboard Meetings – an informal chat with plenty of opportunity for questions – as part of our ‘Broken Frontier Connects’ initiative.
There will be twelve 15-minute spaces available on Sunday, February 11th in two blocks between 2pm-4pm and 5pm-7pm. There will be no charge for these meetings. Rather than a “first come first served” booking system spaces will be allocated on an application process. Priority will be given to marginalised voices and/or work that embraces the language of comics. This will be open to creators resident in the UK and Ireland.
Alternatively you can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Broken Frontier One-to-One Meetings’ in the title field of the e-mail.
In your e-mail application please provide us with the following information:
Artist name (if different from given name)
Social media details
Which bookings blocks you will be available for
Three attached images representing your work
A short bio about yourself and your practice (optional)
Any access needs to support online participation (we’ll do our very best to meet these)
Applications must be received by the end of Wednesday, February 7th. Successful applicants will be informed by lunchtime Friday, February 9th.
Please remember: Broken Frontier is an inclusive platform seeking to celebrate the diversity of the medium and those who work in it. This means this opportunity will not be open to anyone who is either involved in, or who associates with those involved in, anti-progressive comics groups.
