LDC is the largest women-led comics forum for all. Launched in  2009 by  Nicola Streeten and Sarah Lightman the focus is on comics work based on life narrative and the drama of the everyday. The organisation is voluntary with a committee of 6 creators.

LDC now has a worldwide presence with meetings held in Czech Republic, with pop ups in Delhi, Bangalore and New York, as well as closer to home in Birmingham, Leeds, Bristol, Dundee, Manchester with Nottingham, Portsmouth and Southampton branches launching in 2019.  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. 

LDC is a voluntary unincorated organisation. In 2018 with support from Arts Council England and crowdfunding, LDC launched the first women-only prize for graphic novels in progress. LDC activity is now expanding to offer professional development focused activity.

LDC London meetings are currently run by Rachael Ball, Wallis Eates and Nicola Streeten
