I've been to a few conventions and I know it isn't unusual to see tables and companies offering portfolio reviews for artists. When I stumbled upon the Comics Experience / Darby Pop at booth #2107, I was pleasantly surprised to see that they also offered reviews for writers.
Comics Experience offers courses digitally that aim to help hone and develop the skill level of students who are interested at learning how to produce comics. I was informed that everything they do online is intended to utilize the digital to it's full extent, taking advantage of the best that online teaching has to offer these classes, which started in New York as something local and physical, has since become international without losing the individualized and focused approach to teaching that physical classrooms effortlessly achieve.
The value placed on both writers and artists is something that is equally validating and refreshing, especially since solo writers can get lost in the hustle and bustle of the sequential arts world. If you have your work and are looking for a review, be sure to stop by booth #2107 before the end of the convention these folks really do know their stuff!
