We're going to be celebrating the world of small press again this Saturday July 8th, 12pm-6pm, with an afternoon filled with workshops to mark Small Press Day (not to mention add a little something extra into the mix for Pride!) Throughout the day we'll also be putting together a special one-off SPD mini-comic with our pals at Orbital Comics!

Have you ever wanted to tell your own story using comics but didn't know where to start? Well then don't miss this opportunity to come down and sit with some of the UK's top small press creators as they work on new material at our upstairs signing table! Watch them work, ask questions you may have about the process, and even get started on your own projects. The day is broken into one hour slots with different creators working to loose themes, so if a particular genre holds your interest check out the schedule below:

12-1pm All Ages: Ramzee / Paul Shinn / Dan White
1-2pm Sci Fi/Fantasy: Lando / Emix Regulus / Crom / Korinna Veropolou
2-3pm Humour: John Riordan / Josh Hicks / Sajan Rai
3-4pm Autobiography: Olivia Sullivan / Ellie Crewes / Danny Noble
4-5pm Meditations: Anja Uhren / John Cei Douglas / Kat Chapman
5-6pm One Pound Poems: Amber Hsu / Gareth Brooks / Alexis Deacon

While all this is going on, we'll also be putting together a small mini-comic in collaboration with the folks at Orbital Comics (who will also have a programme of events running on the day), literally running pages back and forth between stores for pasting up, copying and stapling, resulting in a free comic by the end of the day. Wish us luck!

And make sure you stick around for the evening launch of the Broken Frontier 2017 Yearbook, spotlighting the best of upcoming talent! Details here!
