Great meeting you too, Ed and Jessica. Still got a warm feeling about it and just wrote it up in a report for the February ASA Newsletter which goes out to over 3000 members.

Do I call you Grug (as the others were doing)?

Yeah, almost everyone calls me Grug, or you can use my real name, Robert.

I've heard the reports from Julie about the Perth Trip, and it sounds it was energized and well worth the trip for the contacts it forged. I hope to meet the Perth comic creators some day.

Hi guys!

Got some Portfolio updates for you all.

Website Page – the ASA now has a dedicated website page for portfolio activities. You can read the latest monthly news reports which are also published in the ASA Newsletter. Here is the link:

http://www.asauthors.org/scripts/cgiip. ... geID=10088

Marketing Know-How – the comics creators who attended the Perth meeting identified the need for educational seminars and resources on marketing. I thought we could start by providing you with useful networking groups, websites and e-newsletters that can help you improve your business practices.

Last Thursday Club – This is a monthly networking event for creative businesspeople – entrepreneurs, innovators, business leaders, idea-makers and thought-leaders. I have attended on a semi-regular basis over the last three years and have learnt a lot and made some excellent connections. It offers exceptional speakers, food, drink, networking activities, prize draws and great fun! It is a Sydney based organisation but the latest news is that the LTC will be opening in Brisbane and Melbourne later on in the year. Check out the following website for details:
http://www.lastthursdayclub.net/

Flying Solo – Identifies itself as Australia’s online community for solo business owners. The website – as well as the weekly e-newsletter – posts excellent articles under subject categories such as Starting Out, Working Smarter, Marketing, Networking, Solo Psyche, Technology, and Staying Balanced. This is highly recommended – get onto the mailing list. Here is the website:
http://www.flyingsolo.com.au/

ParaPublishing – This is a US website which focuses on self-publishing. It offers valuable information on Writing Books, Producing Books, Running Your Own Publishing Business, and Book Marketing, Promoting and Distribution. The e-newsletter has great tips and snippets on US and worldwide publishing trends. Here is the website:
http://parapub.com

Hope this helps!

Hi Comics Creators,
Lots of updates today. In the first instance, I thought you might be interested in the visual Arts grants on offer from the Australia Council>

Good News!

The ASA has provided funding for airfares and accommodation for Jozef and I to do Portfolio sessions at Supanova Melbourne and Brisbane. I will be attending the former and Jozef the latter. We'll keep you posted once we lock in dates, times and venues.

BTW, membership is steadily growing!

ASA Comics/Graphic Novels Portfolio Members Opportunity!

Submissions are now open for the 2008 National Young Writers' Festival (NYWF). We are seeking proposals from writers of short fiction and critical non-fiction, poets, novelists, journalists, zinesters, bloggers, playwrights, curators, editors, word-loving performance and installation artists, independent publishers, critics, activists, media geeks, comics artists, theory-heads and more … to take part in the massive 2008 10th Anniversary festival.



The NYWF has been Australia's premier event for young and emerging writers and culture-makers for the last decade. In 2008 we are celebrating this achievement with a special 10th anniversary festival. The NYWF encompasses over 70 events including readings, panel discussions, performances, exhibitions, interventions and a wide range of special projects, and brings together nearly 200 guests from a huge variety of backgrounds. It is a hands-on festival aimed at writers themselves, with the majority of audiences aged between 18 and 35. As well as playing host to senior and more experienced artists, NYWF is also home to fresh-faced first-timers. If you are passionate about writing and have something to share with thousands of like-minded people from across Australia, we want to hear from you.



Expressions of interest are sought from writers and artists wishing to participate in the 2008 Festival program. We are also seeking proposals for events, performances, installations or workshops of any nature which are in keeping with the NYWF's style and culture. We will be accepting proposals until Saturday 31st March, 2008.



The 2008 NYWF is on from October 2 – October 6. For more information and to download an application form, go to www.youngwritersfestival.org If you have any questions, or want to discuss an idea in person, don't hesitate to get in touch with this year's festival directors: Amy Ingram: amy@nywf.org.au | 0413 006 046; Daniel Evans: daniel@nywf.org.au | 0407 594 487; Nicolas Low: nic@dislocated.org | 0424 832 231.
