During the next few months londonprintstudiois providing 16-20 year old comic artists and writers with a fantastic chance to see their work in print. We are publishing a groundbreaking anthology that will include the work of the best of young British comic talent. The anthology will be distributed to major publishers and editors across the UK and publicised across the British comic scene.
This is a fantastic opportunity for budding artists and writers to submit work for the chance to see it published and promoted and an excellent addition to your CV, portfolio or art school application. We will select the best applicants to be part of the anthology. The project is funded by the John Lyon’s Charity, which means that this opportunity is entirely free!

londonprintstudiowill also be running free comic workshops to assist you in your creative process. These will be run by scriptwriters, comic artists and industry professionals who will all mentor you and help develop your ideas.

The theme of the anthology is Imagined Cities.
