There will be stalls showcasing a range of ethical organizations and employers – from NGOs to book publishers – exhibiting what they do and providing attendees with knowledge and opportunities to find work with meaning.

A series of interactive panel sessions, led by progressive journalists, academics and activists, will look in detail at issues affecting the workplace.

The first 200 people through the door get a goody bag.

Portfolio Reviews

  • Are you an art or design student aspiring to be a comic book artist and/or a graphic novelist? Bring along your work-in-progress and have an appraisal from Myriad’s Creative Director Corinne Pearlman.
  • As organizers of the First Graphic Novel Competition, we are always on the lookout for new creators. And while a portfolio review isn’t a passport to publication, it can be a really helpful guide to where you are in your development and what your next steps might be.
  • If you’re a creative writer, we can tell you about our First Drafts competition for new authors, and if you want to make your career in publishing, come visit us too: we are always happy to meet and advise.
