Hundreds of marginalized creators have used Kickstarter to bypass gatekeepers, find their supporters, grow their communities, and thrive as artists; all while maintaining creative autonomy. To help queer creators put their best foot forward on the platform, Kickstarter’s Comics Outreach Lead Camilla Zhang will lead a workshop and Q&A session about what goes into a great Kickstarter comics campaign. This event is part of the Bluestockings Queer + Trans Comics Fest running August 8th to 16th, find more info about all the amazing vendors and events over on https://bluestockings.com/comics-fest/vendor-schedule/.
