Poetry Comics Workshop: A Game of Words & Pictures

Choose your own adventure for Britain!

The National Poetry Library and the London Graphic Novel Network present a collaborative workshop exploring how the expression of poetry can be paired with the art of comics. Create an anthology of poetry comic strips in a little over an hour, expressing what path the UK should take in a post-Brexit world.

Led by poet Chrissy Williams (Bear, Bloodaxe Books) and comics artist Alison Sampson (Winnebago Graveyard, Image Comics), the workshop involves a mix of collage and illustration and is suitable for all, even for those with little to no experience with art or poetry.
