After not having done any conventions for a couple years, I’m going to a thing: the annual Comics & Medicine Conference is happening at the Seattle Public Library, June 15-17. This is mostly an academic crowd with an educational and therapeutic focus, but they like fiction and humor and whatever too, and I have an affinity for this kind of stuff even though my own health-care career is a thing of the past now. Thanks to Thi Bui for telling me about this group.
I’ll be there mostly to learn about other people’s work, but I’ll also be doing a 5-minute presentation in one of their “lightning talk” sessions about a nursing-related story I’ve been working on. And I’ll be sitting at a little table at their brief book-selling event—with luck, premiering a new minicomic; more about that soon.
