Laydeez do comics

Laydeez do comics is  the first UK graphic novel forum led by women. Its focus is on comics work based on life narrative and the drama of the everyday. LDC was launched in July 2009 by  Nicola Streeten and Sarah Lightman.

Nicola Streeten is anthropologist-turned- illustrator and author of award-winning graphic novel, 'Billy, Me & You'. She is  currently researching a PhD on Contemporary British feminist comics at the University of Sussex. Her website Graphic Cultures is related to her research.

Sarah Lightman is an award-winning artist, curator and writer researching a PhD in Autobiography and Comics at University of Glasgow.She has published her research in numerous books and journals. Lightman is co-curator of the critically acclaimed internationally touring exhibition Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women. Sarah is editor of Graphic Details: Jewish Women's Confessional Comics in Essays and Interviews 

Streeten and Lightman shared an interest in comics and graphic novels that were not about superheroes but were focused on the domestic and autobiographical. They felt that they couldn’t be alone and they were right! LDC now has a worldwide presence with meetings held in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, as well as closer to home in Bristol and Leeds. Artists, academics, publishers and fans from around the world are invited to speak at LDC. The evenings are a platform for people to test new works and ideas, where emerging artists present their work alongside more established practitioners, in an inspiring and friendly atmosphere. Everyone is welcome, including those with no knowledge of comics and those already immersed. Wine, beer and home-baked cakes are served too!

To find out more about LDC and to hear podcasts and read the blogs of previous meetings, please see our website.
