Ooligan Events & Outreach ended up being a serendipitous match for meeting local comics creators and assembling a panel at Write to Publish 2020.
Write to Publish
Events and outreach: if you’re a new or prospective student of book publishing, chances are you’ve come across this term once or twice when looking into the program or researching the publishing industry in general. The term itself can be a bit vague, since it can encompass a lot of things. I didn’t know exactly what it was either when I first started at Ooligan. At the time, I knew it had something to do with a conference, and since I’m an avid convention goer, that was enough to hook me in. But once I started working with the team, I got a better sense of what it was, how important it was, and what it meant to be a part of it.

Now that the conference is over, the Outreach and Project Development Team is starting to envision what Write to Publish 2019 will look like as well as focusing more heavily on the project development side of the team.
