Details On Sarah Laing's Graphic Novel-Making Residency
There's a semi-lengthy and details-focused article here on the multi-careered Sarah Laing's forthcoming Michael King Writers' Centre University of Auckland Residency. That seems like an event worth noting to me just for the opportunity it provides, and the fact that the end result is a lengthy comic as opposed to some sort of prose work. Institutional support is going to be vital for some key works over the next ten years. I don't know if what results here will be one of them, but certainly at some point we'll be able to point to a major comics work and cite its prize-oriented origins, if we don't have one already kept from my fingertips by an early-morning fog and lack of powerful coffee.
