Well this sounds like fun. From The Guardian newspaper;

Curated by graphic novel publisher SelfMadeHero, this in-depth full-day seminar covers everything you could need to know, from the history of the artform to the mechanics of getting published. With tutors including the bestselling author and graphic novelist Audrey Niffenegger and comic book critic, historian and author Paul Gravett, you'll learn about the unique possibilities the format offers, how to find and work with an illustrator, how to plan an original narrative or adapt an existing text, and how to visualise the finished pages. The day also includes a primer on the realities of the graphic novel industry, making this an ideal all-round course for budding writers who'd like to try their hand at a graphic novel script. Other tutors include Professor of Illustration at the Royal College of Art Andrzej Klimowski, comics writer and curator Paul Gravett, and the creator of 2000 AD Pat Mills.

£99 a ticket if you get in early.
