New Group Offers Networking For Cartoonists

Iona Woolmington Self Portait

This coming Tuesday is the inaugural meeting of the Comics Club in Burlington.

It's a new networking opportunity for those interested in sharing ideas and talking about opportunities to get one's work seen and sold.

The Comics Club is being organized by Iona Woolmington, an illustrator who also works as a farmer in Burlington's Intervale. 

Woolmington says the group is open to amateur and professional cartoonists and illustrators.

She says that because drawing is such a solitary experience, it can be liberating to share work and ideas with others. 

VPR's Neal Charnoff speaks with Woolmington about what she hopes to accomplish with the Comics Club.

The group will meet Tuesday, May 14, at 6:00 p.m. at Arts Riot in Burlington.
