Queer Memoir Comics Workshop

November 20-22 at 1:00-4:00pm

In this Queer Memoir Comics workshop series, Fern Pellerin will give a short introductory course in queer memoir comics and technical skills in comic-making. This online workshop invites 2SLGBTQ+ people to create short memoir comics about themselves, their lives, experiences and memories. The comics produced from this workshop will be compiled in an anthology which will be housed on MSVU Art Gallery’s website.
