Do you know what’s scary? Cornwall Graphic Novel Group will be celebrating its fourth birthday in March. The community reading group I’ve been running has been going for almost four years. But this means the group needs to ensure it remains relevant to comics and graphic novel fans in Cornwall.
Normally, Cornwall Graphic Novel Group meets each month in a location in Falmouth, Cornwall, UK and discuss either a particular comic book series/graphic novel, writer or artist that we’ve been encouraged to read in the weeks preceding the meet up. At the meet-up we discuss what we’ve been reading for the first hour or so and then shift the conversation to general geeky stuff, offering people the chance to talk about the other passions in their lives. It’s all very informal and relaxed.
Of course this formula doesn’t always work for everyone. So the group has launched a survey to gain valuable feedback in how CGNG can still best serve comic and graphic novel fans in Cornwall. The hope is that with this feedback, we’ll be able to design future meetings that people will want to attend and (crucially, in a rural county like Cornwall) actually get to.
If you’re in the area and this is the kind of community group you’d like to get involved with, then please fill out the survey form below, or if that’s not working for you, you can head to the survey page here.
