Professional Development Seminars

The Australian Society of Authors (ASA) is holding a number of professional development seminars that may be of interest to comics creators, ASA Comics/Graphic Novels Portfolio members and our Black Mermaid™ blog readers. Although the seminars are aimed at authors and illustrators in general, the skills you will learn are definitely transferable into the profession and business of comics and graphic novels. Furthermore, many of the ASA portfolio members identified marketing as one of the key areas of interest, so two of these seminars will fulfill this need. The seminars are as follows:
Editing and Book Production – Wednesday 12 November 2008 (Sydney, NSW)
Marketing: The Author as Brand Name – Friday 21 November 2008 (Sydney, NSW)
Maximising Opportunities: 4-day intensive course for emerging professional writers – Monday 24 - Thursday 27 November 2008 (Adelaide, SA).
Please  note that the ASA website also has downloadable material from past seminars.
