Friday Comic Creator Connection
Are you a writer with a great idea for a comic book series, but you can’t draw? Or maybe you’re an artist looking to illustrate an incredible story, but you can’t write. WonderCon is proud to once again host the Comic Creator Connection, a fast-paced networking event that puts writers and artists together to help them meet new creative partners. Here’s how it works: In a 2-hour period writers and artists will sit down across from each other at a table. (And by artists, we mean pencillers, inkers, colorists, etc—all are welcome!) Then, in 5-minute sessions, you will talk one-on-one with each other about your ideas and skills. At the end of each 5-minute period, you will get up and move on to the next person. If you’re interested in furthering the conversation, you’ll exchange contact information. Think of it as speed-dating, but for writers and artists! Sign-ups are taken in advance for this event, but space may still be available on site.

Comic Pitch Review
If you’re a writer or artist attending the Comic Creator Connection, this is your chance to practice giving your pitch before the networking event and get some free coaching from a pro. A pitch is usually a brief speech designed to persuade and interest your listener in what you’re doing or what you’ve made. Giving a good pitch is a vital skill you must have to bring your project to life. Fortunately, it’s also a skill you can learn and improve with practice. Pitch reviews will be conducted by Douglas Neff, an experienced presentation coach and professional public speaker who also hosts the Comic Creator Connection. This is not a panel. Instead, these are 3- to 5-minute individual coaching sessions for as many people as can be accommodated in the scheduled time. Spaces are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.
