Comic Creator Connection #1
Are you a writer with a great idea for a comic book series, but you can’t draw? Or maybe you’re an artist looking to illustrate an incredible story, but you can’t write. Perhaps you’re both looking for someone to collaborate with so you can jumpstart your careers in the comic book industry. At San Diego Comic-Con 2017’s Comic Creator Connection, you just might find each other! San Diego Comic-Con is proud to once again host the Comic Creator Connection, a fast-paced networking event that puts writers and artists together to help them meet new creative partners. Here’s how it works: in two 2-hour sessions—on Friday, July 21, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM and Sunday, July 23, from 12:00 to 2:00 PM—writers and artists will sit down across from each other at a table. (And by artists, we mean pencillers, inkers, colorists, etc. All are welcome!) Then, in 5-minute sessions, you will talk one-on-one with each other about your ideas and skills. At the end of each 5-minute period, you will get up and move on to the next person. If you’re interested in furthering the conversation, you’ll exchange contact information. Think of it as speed-dating, but for writers and artists! Sign ups are taken in advance for this event, but space may still be available on site.

Comic Creator Connection All-Stars
The Comic Creator Connection (CCC) is Comic-Con's premier networking event that brings together writers and artists who are searching for their creative counterparts. This "All-Star" panel spotlights some of the latest teams and newest creations to come out of the CCC. Hosts Douglas Neff and Corey Rothermel (authors of Epic Win!: The Geek's Guide to the Journey from Fan to Creator) will focus the discussion on how each team built a successful creative partnership from their first handshake to their first draft to their first sale. If you want to know how to create comics with another person, don't miss out on this collection of practical advice and hard-earned wisdom from the industry's newly published comic book creators!

Comic Pitch Review #2
If you're a writer or artist attending the Comic Creator Connection, this is your chance to practice giving your pitch ahead of time-and get some free coaching from a pro. So, what's a pitch? A pitch is the way you present yourself or your project to others. It is usually a brief speech designed to persuade and interest your listener in what you're doing or what you've made. Most creators have no trouble coming up with fantastic ideas for new comics, but many of those same creators struggle to talk clearly and concisely about those ideas to other people. That's your pitch. And if you want to bring your project to life, you must be able to give a good one. Fortunately, this is a skill you can learn and improve with practice-and Pitch Review is a great place to do that. Pitch reviews will be conducted by Douglas Neff, an experienced speaker coach and professional speechwriter, who also co-hosts the Comic Creator Connection. This is not a panel. Instead, these are 3-5 minute individual coaching sessions for as many people as can be accommodated in the scheduled time. Everyone is welcome, but please note that showing up is not a guarantee that you'll get a review session. Spaces are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.
