Nicole J. Georges will lead a workshop on queer and feminist comics and DIY/DIT podcasting.

Speaker bio:
Nicole J. Georges is a writer, illustrator, podcaster & professor from Portland, OR.
Nicole has been publishing autobiographical comics about her queer vegan life for the past 25 years, evolving from teen zinester to graphic novelist.
Her Lambda Award-winning graphic memoir, Calling Dr. Laura, was called “engrossing, lovable, smart and ultimately poignant” by Rachel Maddow, and “disarming and haunting, hip and sweet, all at once” by Alison Bechdel.
Allô, dr Laura? was an Official Selection at the Angoulême International Comics Festival.
She has adapted Calling Dr. Laura into an Edward R. Murrow-award-winning podcast series, called Relative Fiction, with Oregon Public Broadcasting.
Nicole’s latest book, Fetch: How a Bad Dog Brought Me Home, is the recipient of 2 Oregon Book Awards, and a Lambda nomination for best Graphic Novel. It received starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly and the Library Journal, and was voted a 2018 “Great Graphic Novel for Teens” by The American Library Association. It is currently in development for television with Sid Gentle Productions.
